Two down on their luck childhood friends struggle to figure out their lives. Ray a drummer in a rock and roll band, and Owen an aspiring film maker spend most of their time working menial jobs and drinking. When Owen's fiancé Lynn breaks off their engagement he finds himself spiraling, and allows Ray to come along with him to a two bit film festival he has been invited to in Kansas. There Owen makes several attempts to patch up his relationship, while Ray scams them into a deluxe suite at the local Four Seasons hotel by posing as Wally Shawn's son (who happens to be receiving a lifetime achievement award) and generally causes a major ruckus.

decent
6 September 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

not an original story. not artistic revelations. only a film about small, ordinaries things. about friendship and grow up, relations, happiness. superficial in the first part, touching in the second. short, a film about pure life. not surprising. but nice. and real interesting, first for the performance of Chris Klein who reflects in wise manner the symptoms of Peter Pan Syndrome.and this is the basic virtue of a film about almost nothing , who could be defined as only another from its genre. film about the purpose of life, it has the strange art to redefine old known things . and the result becomes, after the confusion , a decent work.
