New Year's Eve, 1981, the Lower East Side. Monica's having a party, but as late as 9, no one's there. She stews (and drinks). Folks are on their way, all looking for love, sex, or both. En route, paths cross, gambits misfire: a performance artist, her boyfriend until today and his long-time pal Lucy, two Long Island high-school girls, two punk rockers, a bartender, a Scottish painter who's lousy in bed, a pretty face named Jack who runs when women say they love him, his cute but clumsy date Cindy, two trendy vamps, a loquacious cabby, the man-crazed Hillary, and Elvis Costello. Nearly everybody smokes, and nearly everybody scores. And all get who and what they deserve. Written by
During filming Casey Affleck mentioned to Kate Hudson that 'Romeo and Juliet' by Dire Straits was one of his favorite love songs. Hudson secretly convinced the director to play the song during Affleck and Hudson's characters final scene together as a surprise for him. Casey Affleck didn't find out until he watched the movie at the premiere. See more »
This movie is set during New Years in the dead of winter, yet there is no snow, the people's breath is not visible, and people are not dressed at all for winter weather. See more »
One of the ugliest bitches I've ever seen in my life rolled up, and I'm not one to call women ugly, but I think this woman was, because she had a penis.

At the end of credits Disco Cabie can be heard saying, "If you only remember one thing I've said, remember this; James Brown is the baddest motherf@cker in show business." See more »
I hope I would be sleeping. What A waste of good young talent. Ben Affleck and Courtney Love should be ashamed of theirselves. The plot is very loose, the characters boring and the photography just adds insult to injury. The only thing good is the closing credits with the new Blondie song. (Trust me, buy the record rather than waiting around to hearit. Better memories!)
