New Year's Eve, 1981, the Lower East Side. Monica's having a party, but as late as 9, no one's there. She stews (and drinks). Folks are on their way, all looking for love, sex, or both. En route, paths cross, gambits misfire: a performance artist, her boyfriend until today and his long-time pal Lucy, two Long Island high-school girls, two punk rockers, a bartender, a Scottish painter who's lousy in bed, a pretty face named Jack who runs when women say they love him, his cute but clumsy date Cindy, two trendy vamps, a loquacious cabby, the man-crazed Hillary, and Elvis Costello. Nearly everybody smokes, and nearly everybody scores. And all get who and what they deserve.Written by
During filming Casey Affleck mentioned to Kate Hudson that "Romeo and Juliet" by Dire Straits was one of his favorite love songs. Hudson secretly convinced Director Risa Bramon Garcia to play the song during Affleck's and Hudson's final scene together as a surprise for him. Casey Affleck didn't find out until he watched the movie at the premiere. See more »
The beer that the punk kids offer to Val and her friend is Miller Genuine Draft, a brand of beer that was not introduced until well after 1981. See more »

occasionally funny line was enough to keep me interested
`200 Cigarettes' **1/2. New Year's Eve, 1981 and everyone is going to the same party. The story line follows a half dozen, maybe ten `couples' around NYC going to the party. Slow in places, funny in places. The slow parts are annoying, but the occasionally funny line was enough to keep me interested. Worth the rental.
