Storyline

It's Friday afternoon, and Dave McGuiness has a problem. Last night, his longtime girlfriend, Karen, told him that she wants to get married. She'd like an answer by Monday, but Dave's not sure he's ready to propose. As Dave starts to share his feelings with family and close friends on the pros and cons of getting married, he learns that the rumor mill is two steps ahead of him. Everyone in the South Suburbs of Chicago already thinks he and Karen are "officially" engaged. Dave's buddy Marv knows just what will help Dave forget the dilemma for a while. He takes Dave, Dave's brother Ben and their friend Al out to party on the town all weekend. Marv figures that if this is Dave's last weekend before he pops the question, it had better be one he won't soon forget.

And it seems that everyone they talk to has an ... Written by Anonymous

just like me and my friends
3 May 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I SAw this movie at the new york international film and video festival a few years ago. I almost completely forgot about it until a friend of mine last week started talking about how some girl tried to blackmail him into getting married. I grew up in Detroit, and me and my friends were just like the guys in this movie. I mean, we weren't as funny an d everything, but it really reminded me of the stuff we did or thought was funny.

It's too bad this doesn't look like it got any distribution. I'm at NYU now, and I know how hard it is to get films out there, but I think this won an award at the festival I saw it at. Its a little scary to think that if I make something as good, it might not ever get seen.
