Storyline

It's Christmas time in the twin cities. Billy's working a lot of overtime, running barges on the Mississippi. He calls his friend Eddie, whom he hasn't seen in six months, and asks a favor: to drive with him to see his pregnant girlfriend, Patti, because Billy hasn't told her he's married and already has two children. The road trip of guy talk becomes a night of truths exchanged between men and women. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Rocks!
26 February 2000 | by Zooter-2See all my reviews

"Patti" is a strange and gutsy little flick with dialogue that sounds improvised, but in a good way - this is how real people talk. Give credit to the actors for getting naked, too...appropriate in a film about stripping down barriers and getting to the core behind the ugly things we say.

Besides, it's kinda fun, and short enough to hold your attention. Nice one when your date bails on you.
