Cute, light hearted, and amusing stuff free on cable.
"Hi-LIfe" tells of a NYC corner pub and the antics of numerous young adults associated with it...a sort of "Cheers" kind of "feel". The plot: He needs to pay off a bookie. His girl friend tells her bro she's preggo and needs the money for an abortion. The bro begin calling in old debts from old friends...etc, etc, etc. With a Christmas time in NYC ambiance, a good cast of second tier actors, and a clever plot, "Hi-Life" has much going for it. Unfortunately, it plays like a tv sitcom with only a modicum of entertainment and a script below the level of the acting talent. Enjoyable stuff for the terminally bored but no sex, nudity, love story, or hilarity.
