Storyline

A group of people come together in an anonymous waiting room. All are wearing name tags. As they exchange small talk, though, we realize there's something odd: some of them are saying things about themselves that are clearly false, like the middle-aged man "Beth" and another middle-aged man hitting on a 14-year-old girl.

Simply genius
26 March 2002 | by (Fairfield, CT) – See all my reviews

It takes a few minutes to understand what is going on, but that moment of realization is immensely satisfying, as you realize, "I've done that!" A very witty satire with a great ending. Can't wait to see more from the director.
