Malcolm, Ben, Long and Chai meet up on the rooftop of an office block for an unusual suicide plan. The four men, driven to the edge by problems and stresses, are going to jump off the roof in a protest against the miserable lives of men. But before they take the leap of their life, they have agreed to give themselves three hours to say their last goodbyes. They are in for a big surprise when two more unexpected "guests" with the same suicidal intent join them to share a men-to-men, heart-to-heart talk. Written by
this movie has some funny and ironic stuff in it. it's about 6 men; 4 of them are connected because they know each other quite well, 1 of them is connected to one of the 4. the problem with the title "6 strong guys" is that one of the 6 men (the one i didn't mention above) plays a very small role compared to the other 5, so his presence feels contrived. otherwise, the subplots of the other 5 are interesting to watch, because each of them faces a problem that many men are familiar with. examples are a stressful job, a pregnant ex-girlfriend, and an unhappy marriage. however, their situations are exaggerated for comedic effect, which in some cases works well and in other cases doesn't. i liken some of its appeal to the movie "office space," because it talks about average guys with average lives, but exaggerates their situations which makes the movie funny.
i'd recommend it. 7/10
