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.
Told from three perspectives, a story of a bunch of young Californians trying to get some cash, do and deal some drugs, score money and sex in Las Vegas, and generally experience the rush of life. Written by

The director picked the grocery store that the movie was filmed in because of its "run-down, big city" quality. When the producers paid the owner of the supermarket for permission to film there, the owners took some of that money and repainted and repaired the store, for a more "hollywood" look. The director and producers were understandably unhappy with this, since the only reason they picked the store was how it looked in the first place. The producers, after getting consent from the store, hired a crew to bring the store back to what it had looked like before. The finished product is what you see in the film. See more »
When the guys from the strip club chase Simon and Marcus to their hotel room, one puts his hand over the eye hole to hide their identities and says "room service". Through the spyhole they see his hand including the fingers. When they then cut to the door you seem him take away his hand which was previously completely covering the spyhole. You wouldn't be able to see any of his hand if he spread his hand completely over the hole. See more »

This film has traces of Pulp Fiction embedded in it, but it's got a little "Swingers" and other films to it as well. All in all it's an entertaining movie which ends without epiphany for these characters (like .....). This film has multiple stories but does not try to be alternative and cool. It just wants to work! Sarah Polley (whom I never heard of at the time but follow her work now) was great; Katie Holmes wasn't quite Katie Holmes - and that was good; Fichtner's good; but my favorite was Timothy Olyphant who did a kick-ass job of a charasmatic bad-guy (it was hard not to hate him by the end). I've read the other comments and these people just take this thing TOO seriously! It's not the movie of 1999, it's not "Pulp Fiction", it's just "Go". I have this movie on DVD and heard Doug Linman's commentary: he sounds like he had a lot of fun making this. I had a killer time watching this. I guess if I came in with different expectations I would've hated it like everyone else on this site!
