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.

I have seen some scenes from the movie..mostly the scenes with a blues singer named Marci Curtis. She sounds like a soulful Bonnie Raitt.i heard of her music from myspace of course and i found it to be very good and a fresh new sound.thats how i heard about the movie and i then saw some of the scenes from the movie. there is also a scene with Anthony Micheal Hall in it which is strange since his name has been omitted from the cast list on here. he tells a story about a woman he is dating or something and tells this story about how she died. i don't exactly know why he isn't on the cast list.i believe he told marci that he was also a producer. so just a little confusion on my part. but the music definitely holds up to the name of the movie.
