Angel celebrates the birth of his daughter by taking his first hit of crack cocaine. With the hesitant support of his wife, Monika, he joins a friend of his to deal drugs for a short time--enough time to get out of debt and buy some nice things for the family. Three years later, Angel is still dealing, and has not saved any money, instead spending it on crack. His addiction grows, straining his friendship and his family life, and he gradually loses control. Written by

... About SWEET NOTHING is that all the comments on this page have praised it while 174 voters have only given the movie an average rating of 5.0
My own opinion is that this is a very flawed movie . Take the opening sequence when we`re shown the fate of Angel . Think about that for a moment , as soon as the opening credits stop rolling we know what the ulitimate outcome of Angel`s life is going to be so right away there`s no surprises for the audience . This sums up what`s wrong with the movie - It`s badly written and I can give several instances :
The voice over : Very distracting and it`s not even used as exposition
Gaps missing : Angel tries the crack pipe for the first time and the story jumps via a caption " Three Years Later " . What ? Angel has been a crack fiend for three years ! Strange that there`s been absolutely no consequence of his habit within that time . Very unconvincing
Goof : Angel is a former marine but his former marine buddy refers to him as " Soldier " . Former USMC members would would refer to each other as " Marine " not " Soldier "
Sorry guys but I didn`t think much of SWEET NOTHING . It`s badly structured and not very well acted . It does make the accurate point that no one is forced to take drugs but there`s umpteen better drug movies out there
