Waiting for something to happen.
4 May 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I watched this film on TV waiting for something to happen. But it didn't.

Unless you include the badly lip-synced songs the 'friends' insisted on torturing the audience with at regular intervals.

If you want to see a handful of cliched, one-dimensional characters go through life in a highly predictable way, I can't recommend this film enough. Unrequited love, success, failure and growing up are all handled with equal ineptitude.

I hope I exceed my life expectancy by 90 minutes to make up for it.
