One of my favorite films of all time. Hip, like Pulp Fiction, it's just crazy-insane fun. Not for everyone, due to language and drugs, but I really LOVED it! There are also so MANY cameos of great actors we know and love today.
Director Doug Liman has gone on to do HUGE, great movies, such as The Bourne Identity and Mr and Mrs Smith. Here we see some of his early talent.

Just a great, fun movie, that hasn't seen been seen by as many people as it should.
