Lila wants to emulate the sexual exploits of her more experienced best friend. She fixates on a tough older guy who will "sleep with anyone" and tries to insert herself into his world, putting herself in a dangerously vulnerable situation.
With the impending Y2K apocalypse fast approaching, Abbie is faced with the ultimate challenge - the unbeatable level 256 on Pac-Man - and he can't get off the couch until he conquers it. A survival story set in a living room.
JR has broken up with her professor. She enlists her nervous and obnoxious younger brother Colin to take a short road trip in order to help move out her belongings. They bicker and fight, with one another and pretty much anybody they encounter, before being brought to a place of togetherness and understanding as a result of being pushed away by everybody in their lives except one another.Written by
Doesn't this movie get any points for being funny?
All of the vicious criticisms of this movie - it's indie mumblecore narcissist hipster preciousness shot on a micro-budget, starring a guy who's a cross between the poor man's Woody Allen and the poor man's Michael Cera - are fair enough. The Color Wheel definitely is the abomination I just described.
But it's really funny! The shapeless plot and the half-assed characterizations somehow work to the movie's benefit; it has a silly unpredictability, and the dialogue is peppered with a million dumb jokes. I scowled at this movie for about ten minutes, and then I grudgingly started having a good time.
By the way, I actually like the aesthetic; it reminds me of Mala Noche, In the Soup, and some early Jim Jarmusch movies.
