The cheerless events on the last night in the existence of a little suburban Houston pub. It has to be closed down for development reasons but one of the regular customers, Cowboy, seems to have friends in high places.Written by

The bar where the film was shot was still in business, so daily shooting had to finish by 4:00 p.m. when it opened for the evening to the public. See more »
In the opening shot of Ichabod and Mary in the pickup truck, a crew person can be seen standing in the back of the truck in a reflection of several passing storefront windows. See more »

Like a compelling home movie.
This hard-to-find gem is more than a slice of Texas, it's a slice of America. It's the final night of the local loser hangout, shot as if you just walked in the place and hung out for an hour and a half. I really wonder how much of the film's dialogue was actually scripted and how much was adlibbed. There are some truly funny one-liners early on (Mostly by "Claude"). The non-stop profanity does get a little unrealistic and the ending was sort of unsatisfactory, however, what we have is a film containing most of the elements of a truly classic independent film. Sort of a po' man's "Last Picture Show". Seek it out.
