Storyline

Tongue-in-cheek look at 20-something singles clubbing and partying in L.A.; it's organized into 15 chapters from overview and preparation to partying and the morning after. Voice-over narration, charts and graphs, and visits to a research laboratory punctuate the story of a single night when groups of friends go out, drink alcohol, take drugs, dance and talk, and look for someone to go home with. Dangers, minor and major, await those who don't plan well or behave foolishly, and the rewards, even for those who plan well, are few. But the species' survival may depend on these rituals.

Great, fun, real, refreshing
30 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film has been referred to as the newest cult classic -- maybe. It is cool, it is fun and it is, most of all, REAL. Yeh, that probably describes a cult classic. What I liked about it is that it was fun and the entire theater laughed one scene after another - in unison and spontaneously. I mean, I could not stop laughing and the fact that others were laughing with me was major fun.

This movie just Rocks. The character, Andy, in green visor and basketball shirt is really very good. And the other dudes are also all good -- I mean really good. Frankly I was surprised how together this film was. I expected an okay little indie film but this blew me away cause it was actually all pulled together. The acting was all good, the photography work was precise and there and the writing was witty and real. Sometimes gems happen.

All the guys on this shoot have a shot. I think we will see them all again and again. It reminded me of "The rat pack" flick. Go see this -- you'll really like it and follow this crew -- they are really all going places!
