Tired of living with his mother and her new boyfriend, a high-strung and responsible guy decides to rent a run-down Harlem brownstone with his less mature friends. But what seems to be the perfect apartment turns out to be just the opposite. The place is turned into an illegal youth hostel to help pay for rent. An eccentric cast of characters bring them nothing but disaster and chaos. This comedy about growing up, three mid-20 bachelors are faced with naive tourists, fugitives, and wild parties as they struggle to get their lives under control. Written by Anonymous

Great movie!
7 June 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

For the type of lower budget movie with an unknown cast, it's AMAZING! I mean there are a few areas were money and more time might have improved things, BUT overall the actors did AMAZING I'd say better than some of the generic actors in 90% of Hollywood movies. Also unlike Hollywood very little seems over dramatized. There's a very down to earth feel about things. There were little or no parts that dragged on and on.

It's a shame to see it's got such a bad reviews. What? People don't recognize actors names so they think it's bad? Doesn't have your favorite Hollywood idol? People should really go out and see this. Give it a chance it's a good story.
