CHRONICALLY METROPOLITAN is a cynical and clever coming of age film about first time novelist Fenton Dillane, who, unannounced returns to New York City to confront his family, his ex- girlfriend and a few lingering childhood fears.
This was heralded as the return of Kristy Swanson! And I hear you all asking the same question I asked when Swanson was doing press for "Grapevine,"...the return of Kristy Swanson from what? A mediocre film that spawned a much better television series (for four seasons...and then turned as crappy as its source)?
Anyway, I watched this a few times. It didn't last long, for obvious reasons: it was horrendously unfunny. I did enjoy seeing the sunshine of Southern California being given maximum exposure, though -- it was a very sun-filled show. And it introduced me to George Eads, who played a male slut caricature commonly found on hackneyed sitcoms. But he did get me through a few weeks, since he's very sexy, and I can see how that sleazeball routine works on women, since it worked on me. Occasionally I'll suffer through an episode of another horrible show, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," to get a George fix, but I've reached the very sad age where hot people don't get me to obsessively watch things anymore, saving my precious time for works which will hopefully be of high quality.
