Storyline

Brandi is a hard-partying, overworked, nursing assistant desperate for a promotion at the retirement home where she works. After a night of drug-binging and partying, she accidentally hits a certain Thomas Bardo a deadbeat and recently evicted man who gets stuck in the windshield of her car. Not wanting to call for help since she is driving under the influence, Brandi, chooses not to get Thomas medical help and instead drives home and leaves him clinging to his life in the windshield of her car. While Brandi frantically tries to decide what she is going to do, Thomas, tries to free himself knowing his time is running out. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?

Trivia

When the Receptionist calls Thomas to his appointment, she mistakenly calls him "Mr. Brado." This suggests that the reason he is not "in the computer" is a clerical error on the part of the job agency. See more »

Goofs

When Bardo does hit the windshield, it breaks rather large, jagged pieces. Automotive windshields are made from a laminated safety glass. They do not break in sheets, but instead "spider-web" when they are struck. See more »

It really makes you stuck with thrilling moments and some interesting reflections
23 February 2012 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is one of those rare occasions where I was waiting for something to appear on TV, didn't know anything about the picture but there was something there to make me stay until the end. And I can only thank myself for doing so!

In "Pulp Fiction" there's a segment called "The Bonnie Situation" where Harvey Keitel has a small amount of time to clean up the mess made by Travolta after accidentally shot Marvin in the face. That whole scenario was absolutely insane but funny. What "Stuck" makes is incredibly larger than life, ten times twisted and a little bit funny, but it does also involve a situation with a car and lots of blood. Here, Mena Suvari plays an nurse having the best day of her life until she accidentally hit and run a man (Stephen Rea) who was having the worst day of his life after being evicted from his house. OK, hit and run doesn't sound like a nice description since the guy got stuck on her car window and she drove him home, out of desperation of being seen by someone who might denounce her.

Can it get any worse? Yes, it can and it doesn't get better after one bad decision after another made by this woman who simply doesn't help this injured man, who tries in the best possible way (considerally being stuck on a windshield, with a broken leg and losing more and more blood) to get out of there. It gets more dramatic when she calls her boyfriend, a drug dealer, to get rid of her problem. Intense, tense and insane!

Fans of the "snowball effect" situation will be highly thrilled with this story. It has plenty of absurd but it looks real, there's a sense of reality,we can imagine this bizarre scenario happening (not so much for the ending which is awesome and a little bit unexpected). We can put ourselves in the character's shoes, specially on Suvari's character (we would act and think better than her, our moral would be nicer than hers).

A good study on how acting without thinking can get you in lot of trouble becoming an unforgettable thing in your conscience, "Stuck", just like the situation it presents, it's a point of no return. The main difference is that you wanna get stuck with it through the whole time along with Rea and Suvari and their top notch performances. 10/10
