Incarcerated and charged with murder, David Aames Jr. is telling the story of how he got to where he is to McCabe, the police psychologist. That story includes: being the 51% shareholder of a major publishing firm, which he inherited from his long deceased parents; the firm's board, appointed by David Aames Sr., being the 49% shareholders who would probably like to see him gone as they see him as being too irresponsible and immature to run the company; his best bro friendship with author, Brian Shelby; his "friends with benefits" relationship with Julie Gianni, who saw their relationship in a slightly different light; his budding romance with Sofia Serrano, who Brian brought to David's party as his own date and who Brian saw as his own possible life mate; and being in an accident which disfigured his face and killed the person who caused the accident. But as the story proceeds, David isn't sure what is real and what is a dream/nightmare as many facets of the story are incompatible to ...Written by
There's an easter egg hidden on the DVD. From the disc's Main Menu, go to the 'Special Features.' There, select the 'Photo Galleries' and once you get to that menu, highlight the 'Special Features' menu entry. Press the 'Right' arrow key now on your remote control to highlight David's mask. If you press 'Enter' now you will be treated to a six minute gag reel. See more »
As David returns to his car the morning after his night with Sofia, Julie approaches, having waited for him in her car down the street. How could Julie have known where to find him? Julie didn't know Sofia. Julie was still at the party when David and Sofia left. And from the setting and street sign it's clear that Sofia lives near the Manhattan Bridge (Water St.) in Brooklyn, an entirely different part of New York City than David (who lives in The Dakota across from Central Park), so Julie couldn't possibly have found him by just driving around searching. Brian could have told Julie where Sofia lives during the party, but he just met Sofia earlier that day and it would have been an odd thing to do, if he even knew Sofia's address yet himself.

The 2015 Blu-Ray release includes an alternate ending version with a vastly expanded ending. While the events lead to the same conclusion, there are alternate takes and additional scenes (including the scene of David shooting the police officer). See more »
The movie is all about a pop culture addict not aware of the consequences he is going to face after hurting his girlfriend.As he says in the movie its always the small things that changes your life in a big way.The movie gives a clear picture about how dream works and our subconscious mind.David has an inferior feeling about his looks that literally drives Sophia away. He believes it is because of his face.The movie actually takes a turn as a brain teaser,post accident, not explaining things very clearly just like a weird dream. The ending could have been much better as it gives only a glimpse of what actually happened.It took the movie to where it started leaving many questions unanswered.Anyway it is worth a watch....
