Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

occasionally funny line was enough to keep me interested
27 July 2000 | by minnow-6See all my reviews

`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.
