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 Amazing
14 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Only a few words come to mind after watching this film, and those are, in slang, OMG... It is simply fantastic. The cast was very well chosen, the direction was right on target, and the overall "pazzazz" of the film was high and mighty.

9.7/10 --- Superior
