Four young office workers have a bet going to see who can last the longest without going outside. In the maze that is the downtown core of a large city, glass skywalks connect apartment buildings, office towers and shopping malls. Its day 28 of the bet and over the lunch hour, as the office prepares for the company founder's retirement party, things start to seriously unravel. Written by
Every time I see this on TV, I can't stop watching. Tom is dillusional and keeps seeing a super hero and occasionally a couple of business men (who I think represent the 'super villains'). In order to get this you'll have to listen to what he says at the first of the movie. You may have to pay close attention to most of it, but it's worth it. The main thing is that the main characters can't go outside because of the bet, and they're all starting to freak out in their own way, while doing their own thing. It takes place during one noon-hour, and includes a very disgruntled employee and a very emotionally unstable flower deliverer. The editing is pretty weird, it reminds me of The Ninth Gate. This is probably due to the way it was filmed, but if it doesn't bother you then you'll enjoy this film. It has some drugs, occasional sex (sorry, no nude), and a lot of laughs. Definitely one of the best movies I've ever seen.
