Martin Blank is a professional assassin. He is sent on a mission to a small Detroit suburb, Grosse Pointe, and, by coincidence, his ten-year high school reunion party is taking place there at the same time.
This is a story about Mike, a guy who left his girl in New York when he came to LA to be a star. It's been six months since his girlfriend left him and he's not doing so good. So, his pal and some other friends try and get him back in the social scene and forget about his 6 year relationship. Written by

When the main characters are first seen playing video games in Trent's apartment, Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Taxi Driver (1976) posters can be seen on the walls. Later, Trent and Mike argue about Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino, and whether Tarantino copies or pays homage to Scorsese's work. The next scene is a deliberate tribute to Reservoir Dogs' iconic opening scene of the main characters walking in slow motion. Later, the famous Goodfellas (1990) long shot of Henry and Karen walking through the kitchen and into the club is emulated by Trent and Mike. See more »

So, what'd you think of that Dorothy girl?
The whole Judy Garland thing kinda turned me on. Does that make me some kind of fag?
No, baby, you're money.

Upon hearing about this movie from friends, I was told that it was "money". They were right. This is "so money and they don't even know it." Entertaining comedy about letting go, and finding new romance and who your real friends are. Enough one-liners to quote for years, friends still quote it today! Nothing but beautiful babies, and a great upbeat soundtrack to get you dancing!
