Donal Lardner Ward,
O.k., so Reality Bites did much the same thing several years before this movie came out, certainly there's plenty of angst to go around.
This movie isn't perfect, as there are several places along the way where the acting / writing / directing does misfire, but this is a good movie that resonates true as three college friends try to figure out what life after college holds for them.
All three leads are eminently watchable on screen, as all are sympathetic characters despite their flaws. Jason London's self-absorbed credit-card spender shows us why we keep people like him as friends.
If anything, these characters, while still recognizable as X-er archetypes (the shallow biz dude, the waffling woman who can't decide to commit, and the tortured artist in unrequited love) are more real than many other attempts to put them on screen.
A solid piece of work from young writers, directors and actors. Definitely worth a rainy-day rental.
