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.

A must see...pray they get distribution.
12 October 1998 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

A movie with totally entertaining dialogue... conversations that leave you wondering if people really do talk to each other that way. Coney Island is a rarity in that it offers a peephole into the world of male friendships as well as a great reprieve from the sinking ships and apocalyptic explosions that litter the screens these days.
