This is a desperate attempt to be an edgy film but it fails miserably. You know you're in trouble when a film relies on cameos to keep things interesting. "Out in Fifty" is no exception. Appearances by Christina Applegate, Balthazar Getty, and Alexis Arquette don't do anything to forward the plot. They all do a fine job but are given extremely little screen time. Mickey Rourke is absolutely pathetic in his role and really should consider giving up acting. "Out in Fifty" is filmed with a lot of quick takes in spots, which is more likely to induce a seizure rather than make you more excited about the movie. The "plot" involves a guy who is celebrating his 21st birthday in a bar. A young woman picks him up and they have some rough sex. He ends up accidentally killing her and goes to prison for manslaughter. Seven years later he is released and the woman's husband, a cop, becomes obsessed with making the guy's life very difficult. There is also a side plot involving the ex-con and the couple he moves in with. It's all really rather dull and meaningless. 2/10
