Storyline

As a suicidal man (Mark Rosenthal) stands on a roof ready to throw himself off the building, his friends gather to try to convince him not to do it. Through the friends, his tale is told in flashback, leading up to his present state. In general, the film shows the man and all of his friends to be leading shallow, directionless lives, but reveals little of the psychological condition of the group.

Sometimes slow, sometimes funny, but entertaining
22 April 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie has a lot of things going for it, with a pretty interesting cast and good dialogue. There are some slow parts to the movie, specifically the performance by Richard Belzer. I'm a fan of Belzer, but his performance lacks intensity and doesn't really add much to the film. The main characters are interesting, and the direction is superb. Don't expect "Clerks" or "Reality Bites", but it's an interesting movie with some very good laughs.
