Good when it is funny
22 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

At the start of the movie, Alec, Samantha, Trevor and Casey are about to graduate from college. They reunite one year later in Los Angeles, and none of them are doing exactly what they expected.

Alec and Trevor are living together in what can best be described as a dump. Alec would like to be a movie writer, but for now he is basically a secretary to a demanding female boss. Trevor wants to be an actor, but he can never succeed. Casey arrives in town with big dreams and gives the impression he is a success, but he isn't, and he's stuck living in the dump with the others. Plus he needs to find a girl who he had a child with years ago. Samantha, who goes by Sam, is an idealistic social worker who hopes she can keep an immigrant family from being deported, but this proves to be harder than she thinks, and her superiors are no help.

Alec finds out he has a brain tumor, and this may be what is giving him visions. (Can you say "Eli Stone," boys and girls? I knew you could.) He may be seeing the future, or he may be finding out how to solve his problems and those of his friends. The visions give him the idea to rob a bank (though he keeps the source of his idea a secret from the others). And the bank robbery itself is the funniest part of the movie.

This is okay, but overall nothing great. Too much of the movie is depressing, but I did like the funny parts. The ending comes as kind of a surprise.
