Storyline

The Bridge to Nowhere is the story of four young 20-something men from the rough Upper North Side of Pittsburgh. They are stuck in dead-end jobs and struggle with dysfunctional family lives. The guys, inspired by the images of pop culture and the desire to break away from the neighborhood, regularly scheme to make extra money by running minor underground activities, including: sports booking, poker tournaments and house parties. One night during an evening out the four young men stumble across the "new neighbors", two independent prostitutes, Jasper and Candice, who end up inspiring a new business idea. Trapped in her own existence, Jasper, agrees to join forces with the young men to create, quite accidentally, what turns out to be an empire that launches each of them into financial riches. Along the way each character battles their own demons regarding the choices they have made In the end, however, their world comes crashing down on them in grandiose fashion. It's the city of ...

Pimpin' in the Pitts.
14 September 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Four lads stuck in their dead-end ways in Pittsburgh strike upon a scheme to get lots of money and claw their way out of their lowly position. They decide to become pimps. Unfortunately, the girls are only the first part of the plan. To keep the girls happy they need a regular supply of drugs. Then eventually someone buys some guns. Before you can say "increasing paranoia" things look like they're about to come tumbling down around their ears.

It's a rise and fall type of movie that we've all seen many times before and, quite frankly, for the first 20 minutes or so it borders on the tedious. Thankfully, Ving Rhames then comes on the scene, playing a drug dealer who also advises the young men on their radical new business scheme. From then on things get a bit more entertaining though there's still nothing original on display.

The cast is very varied (Bijou Philips and Sean Derry do great, Ben Crowley and Thomas Ian Nicholas don't and Danny Masterson just hangs around on the fringes for most of the proceedings) which doesn't help sell the material but there's always a little fun to be had from watching people rise so quickly that you know the fall is soon coming.

Director Blair Underwood doesn't dazzle, and should really stick to his acting career as any quality moments come from the occasional decent line from the script, but he also doesn't fall flat on his face so may be there will be improvement over time if he tries to be a little bit more daring with material that can easily feel stale before it even starts to pull you in. It's passable fare but nothing worth going out of your way to see.

See this if you like: Alpha Dog, 8 Mile, Risky Business.
