The Cardiff club scene in the 90's: five best friends deal with their relationships and their personal demons during a weekend. Jip calls himself a sexual paranoid, afraid he's impotent. Lulu, Jip's mate, doesn't find much to fancy in men. Nina hates her job at a fast food joint, and her man, Koop, who dreams of being a great hip-hop d.j., is prone to fits of un-provoked jealousy. The fifth is Moff, whose family is down on his behavior. Starting Friday afternoon, with preparations for clubbing, we follow the five from Ecstacy-induced fun through a booze-laden come-down early Saturday morning followed by the weekend's aftermath. It's breakthrough time for at least three of them.Written by
When Jip first picks up Koop in his car you hear the radio broadcast BBC's Radio One. The MC is Pete Tong, who is the movie's Music Supervisor. Pete Tong actually did have a weekly radio show on Radio One. See more »
When Jip talks to the manager of the Asylum, Jip asks to use the phone to call his assistant. While he is on the phone, the camera flicks back the manager. In this shot, the phone Jip is supposed to be calling on is clearly visible in the foreground, still on the hook. See more »

With no storyline and bland characters; this film has nothing to say. Get Trainspotting instead.
I would like to comment on the full extent of this film, but was unable to sit through this tiresome episode where a group of boring, one dimensional characters partake in their equally boring activities in the Welsh youth scene. It seems the film owes a lot to Trainspotting, unfortunately it comes nowhere near, the lack of an identifiable plot and a lack of interest in the characters makes it no alternative. The film finishes more or less where it started, nothing of any consequence happens and there are no particular features in the story. Don't fall for the exciting press release and packaging, as I did. It is a film which is too wrapped up in it's own image to have anything to say.
