What a different kind of film, unique!
2 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this film. This movie focused on one day in the lives of several Los Angeles residents. None of the main characters lead extraordinary lives so I could relate to almost all of them on a personal level. I thought it was so clever how the characters in the different storylines unconsciously passed each other, either on the street, in a bank or at the store without knowing that later that day they would all share in a horrific life altering experience. I absolutely loved the storyline surrounding Carol (played by Donna Murphy). Carol is a middle aged, jilted woman, whose husband dumped her for his younger, surgically enhanced secretary. I thought Tate Donovan did a fabulous job as a typical, young fast talking businessman, who spent his day trying to woo a beautiful woman he met outside his office. I also thought Michael Pare, who played a down on his luck factory worker, did a wonderful job. It really bothered me to see this particular actor play such a dismal, almost pathetic character, I found myself wishing I could help him. The movie progressed fast and the climatic ending had a surprising twist, which I liked. I did not come out of this movie with a joyous feeling, but I definitely got a lot out of it, life is short, make the best of it.
