Jim is a shy, withdrawn loner, pervert, and virgin. Lana is a friendly and outgoing born again Christian who has renounced her promiscuous drug filled past. They have never met until they step into an elevator together one day. The elevator gets stuck between floors, and they start to get to know each other. A building maintenance man assures them over the elevator's emergency intercom that an elevator repairman is on the way to let them back into their lives. Hours, days, weeks, and months pass, and no repairmen ever show up. Jim and Lana spend their days screaming into the intercom trying to get the maintenance guy to answer again. He doesn't. Starvation is not a problem for them, as Lana entered the elevator with a bag full of groceries which is mysteriously found to be filled with fresh food every morning. After enough time passes, Jim gives up hope of escape and resigns himself to building a new life in the elevator with who he sees as his first girlfriend. Lana on the other hand... Written by
A brilliant concept that was basically thrown together
Watching this movie was like being in a crappy Hollywood acting class and watching two unprofessional actors do a (YAWN) scene for an hour and a half. The IDEA of this film is excellent, but it was put together very poorly, and why it was filmed in black and white is beyond me. Zeb, knock it off with the "trying to make your movie look artsy" with the black and white and the "off centering" of the actors. It doesn't work. It's just ignorant. Also, why after weeks and months of being in the elevator did the actors look cleaner than they did after being stuck for 2 days. You needed to see the progression of Zeb's character going mad.
And lastly there is one major thing I wanted to comment on: I love dry sick humor, (I'm a Family Guy fanatic) but the whole HA HA at the end credits that stated "No animals were harmed except for mice and lobsters" didn't fly with me in the least. Whether this statement was completely a joke or whether it happened to be real was NOT funny. Harming animals is not funny, even if it was intended to be a joke.
