Storyline

The Bridge to Nowhere is the story of four young 20-something men from the rough Upper North Side of Pittsburgh. They are stuck in dead-end jobs and struggle with dysfunctional family lives. The guys, inspired by the images of pop culture and the desire to break away from the neighborhood, regularly scheme to make extra money by running minor underground activities, including: sports booking, poker tournaments and house parties. One night during an evening out the four young men stumble across the "new neighbors", two independent prostitutes, Jasper and Candice, who end up inspiring a new business idea. Trapped in her own existence, Jasper, agrees to join forces with the young men to create, quite accidentally, what turns out to be an empire that launches each of them into financial riches. Along the way each character battles their own demons regarding the choices they have made In the end, however, their world comes crashing down on them in grandiose fashion. It's the city of ...

Good Flick...
19 July 2011 | by Phillyslugga2See all my reviews

Sometimes you have to be from the streets to actually enjoy a movie about the streets so since I am not a movie critic I'll give it to you straight with no chaser. I enjoyed this movie because of the story. This is the story of five friends who live in Pittsburgh, Pa. They have been friends since childhood and growing up and going nowhere which is typical in the hood, any hood, with any race especially when poverty and ignorance are involved. They had no way of making any money and needed a grind which is a hustle/grift to make some easy money and that is where the movie really takes off.

These young guys came up with a brilliant idea, that is if you're from the hood, to make money. And even though the idea for their hustle was a bit far fetched they made it work. The movie involves drugs and a crooked cop which is usually typical in a B movie like this. The cop, played by Ving Rhames, was one grimy, I mean seriously grimy dude.

Rhames played that role very well which made the movie work. And as I said, if you're from the streets you probably know or have known cops like the one played by Rhames. If you're not from the streets and are of the WASP culture who looks at people from the hood as lower life forms and believe that all police officers are outstanding citizens then this movie truly isn't for you.

I've known of cops in Philly that were so low they could rattle around in a gnats navel and if anyone who reads this review knows of the corruption that is running rampant inside the Philly PD then you have a good idea of exactly what I'm talking about. I am not going to spoil the flick for those of you who haven't seen it, but in my humble opinion it was pretty damn good. What is really comical is that the idea could work, that is if you're willing to take the risk of spending a long time in jail, it really could. Enjoy.
