Storyline

Two young men (Jon Cryer, Rick Stear) who have been friends since early childhood decide to go on a trip to find a third friend (Rafael Baez) who has long since disappeared. Stories they have heard indicate that the friend has been seen in an apparently rambling, incoherent state at Coney Island. Their trip leads them to a number of adventures involving the otherworld-like life at the Park and revelations related to their own pasts including the death of one's sister, a failed past relationship, financial failings, and alcoholism.

Funny and touching. A great film.
6 January 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Funny and touching. I really enjoyed this film. It has a good balance of humor and sentiment. Cryer, as always, is a pleasure to watch on screen. I look forward to seeing more of his work and would recommend this film to anyone.
