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

[Ellie is riding with Disco Cabbie complaining about finding Kevin with Lucy]

Well, that's not good for me, man. That kind of energy damages the plush interior of my cab, right? And you're blowing a $5.00 high, mama. You need to find yourself a man who's secure enough to appreciate you for the superior woman that you are. I like a strong woman.
Oh... yeah. Mm-hmm.
And you are a strong woman. If I was ...

This film tells the story of a number of individuals out on the streets of New York on New Years Eve, looking for love and fun.
"200 Cigarettes" is a collection of snapshots of the night. There are many people in the story, and all of them looking for love of varying length. I think the Kate Hudson's subplot stands out because she is so innocent, and yet her date is such a philanderer. Christina Ricci and her friend looking for a party is quite hilarious, while Paul Rudd's subplot really stirs up emotions as he and his female friend struggles for power.
"200 Cigarettes" may be a party film in disguise, but it is more a film to feel rather than a film to entertain. Viewers will find a character in the film to identify with, and feel the emotions.
