Obvious story with standard plot elements but nothing new.
28 July 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

`First to Go' is the story of a weekend on Catalina. Five boyhood friends, now in their 20's are reunited but troubled by the fact that one of them has decided to take the plunge and get married. When they learn that the fiancé has been invited to the island to meet them the other four make it their mission to end the relationship. She turns out to be more than they bargained for and in the end they all agree that all things must end.

Overall this is film is watchable but no great movie. The men do cover all the major arche-types and are easy on the eyes but the dialogue is uninspired and there is no character development beyond the obvious.
