Opening in a Hollywood parking lot on New Years Eve as a crowd gathers around an ambulance as a guy is being loaded in on a gurney, the story is told in flashback by one of the characters to a female detective who comes on the scene of what may have been an attempted suicide and he unravels the story of a year in the lives of 6 guys who hang out in a blues bar in Hollywood, watch sports, trash talk, and bitch about their lives, as they go through problems ranging from construction nightmares to divorce, gambling addiction, alcoholism, child custody fights, and all the headaches and heartaches men go through in the course of their lives. As the story unfolds, the audience is left wondering which one of these guys ended up in the ambulance, and why.

how come it is so under-rated? i get to see so many movies and there are so few in which i find myself glued to the screen, disconnected from anything else, smiling, thinking, analyzing, wanting it to go on forever! i still cannot understand the low rating! to begin with, this is a very good, highly intelligent, highly sensitive script. hard to find many like this nowadays. just happened to watch today "His Girl Friday" and thought how fantastic it is to watch a film which balances so well on its script and talented directing. this is the same here; how refreshing it is to get involved in a fine plot, dealing with people, real people, each character is fully developed from the beginning till the end. no need for dirty language, no use of nudity, and it works perfectly. and the excellent acting of all - main characters as well as the supporting ones. i got very much excited with this film as i never heard of it before, and thanks to my curiosity, i overlooked the low rating and decided to give it a try. what is the matter with all you guys who rated this one? bad relationships with a crew member or what? and sure enough this is not, by all means, a comedy. this one is a DRAMA and a fine one too. in order to get some balance in this misdeed i here by give it a 10, which is not very far from my original 9/10.
