Nick: This is really gonna hurt. They say you see your entire life flash before your eyes right before you die. But this is a fast bullet, so all I really have time to remember are the last few days. I'll start three days ago with my first art class, just a mere hour from my closet-sized apartment in Paramus, New Jersey.

Fairly Bad
5 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one will have you scratching your head as to why it got made. The film had a nice look, but nothing to say. Fairly nice locations, but it hasn't the slightest ring of truth. Pretty architecture and nice scenery, but not one character seems the slightest bit real or believable. It's one big cliche about the vapid, empty-headed spoiled denizens of The Left Coast. I did like one short scene where the Mid-western "artist" deals with a clerk at an airport car rental agency. For people who have never been to LA, or seen another film about LA. A comedic role for one of the stars of 'The Blair Witch Project' which in itself should have you scratching your head. Rent something else.
