A dark comedy about an eclectic group of strangers invited to a downtown bar by a mutual ex-lover, Nikki Franklyn, a maddeningly sexy, unpredictable and possibly insane young woman who's recently gotten out of prison for murdering her last ex-boyfriend. The party really gets started when Nikki herself arrives, hauling her latest lover and fiancee, the morally challenged lawyer who'd been handling her case. She's mysterious about her intentions and her current and former lovers soon realize they are all caught in one of her brilliant, mischievous mind-games with possible deadly consequences.

This film felt a little like The Big Kahuna meets early Joss Whedon. I suspect that if you are a fan of either of those (or, as in my case, both), you will likely have a blast watching this one.
It has some fantastic writing, if not a great overall story. I watched it mostly for Green and Sackhoff, and they did not disappoint, but the other performances were pleasantly surprising as well.
I really enjoy small films like this that take place mostly in one location with a tiny cast. No character feels extraneous, and all of them are developed well and are given a chance to shine. It's a shame the story itself is only so-so, because everything else about this film is pretty much amazing.
