Storyline

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

As bad as the 3.5 rating suggests
13 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, it is low budget; yes, it has no-name actors; yes, it has low production values; AND YES, IT STINKS. I am writing this because the only other review on IMDb says that the movie is terrific and, unfortunately, that review sucked me into to giving it a chance...a decision I regretted 15 minutes into the film. In addition to having really poor acting, sets, costumes, and editing.....the story itself stinks. The dialogue was stiff and unnatural as were the characters. The slice of life storytelling did have some interesting situations (like operating an illegal hostel in Harlem), but none were brought to life. In summary, this movie is a good school project in filmmaking and is deserving of being viewed by the class instructor AND NO ONE ELSE.
