'friends' gather for a birthday party and 'revelations' are made through the night
18 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My God! I had to watch the credits to see if this was actually scripted. It was. It was??!??! What a disappointment. To be honest, my only shallow reason for staying tuned in (I saw it on Sundance) was because the protagonist reminded me of the managing editor of a magazine about ten years ago. I couldn't take my eyes off that guy and I couldn't take my eyes off the guy in the movie. I wouldn't added all this but I couldn't submit my review without more lines of text.

All the players in the movie seemed to be going out of their way to seem believable. Only the hot protagonist who reminded me of my managing editor was believable as far as I'm concerned.
