Storyline

It's the late 1980s, when Wall Street is riding high, and it seems as if the entire country is cashing in on the bumper profits. Disgusted with the materialism that surrounds him, Matt Franklin, a brilliant young MIT graduate, has walked out on his well-paid position at a local lab and taken a low-level job as a video clerk, much to his father Bill's consternation. And the crises keep piling up in Matt's life. His best buddy Barry has just gotten fired from his job, his brainy sister Wendy is getting hitched to her vapid boyfriend Kyle, and the gorgeous Tori Frederking, long-time object of Matt's unattainable adoration, is suddenly back in the picture. Now, on one wild, woolly and irresponsible evening, everything is coming to a head, with explosive results. Written by Anonymous

A new feel good movie.
21 June 2011 | by AkiraKyoShiSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie.

First Im a huge fan of Topher Grace since That 70s Show and In Good Company. (BTW In Good Company). He gives an excellent performance and along with the rest of the quality cast, the acting is just incredible.

Also Im not going to get into the movie itself but its your classic feel good movie similarly to Breakfast Club, 16 Candles etc.

If I had to describe it its Superbad but a lot more mature and tactful. It deals with a situation all of us have had. We all get to a point and go wtf am I going to do with my life. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter. Just focus on good friends, good family and the sheer enjoyment of life.

Enjoy the watch.
