The film follows a group of friends after they graduate from college and struggle to decide what to do with their lives. Their lives in general are being documented by Lelaina, an aspiring filmmaker. She passes around her video camera asking her friends intimate questions and capturing their every moment on film in order to document the struggles of the average young adult. Her friends include the promiscuous Vickie (Garofalo in a sublime supporting performance), the slacker Troy and the closeted Sammy. Together they make for an interesting group, and when you add in Michael Grates, a video executive who takes a liking to Lelaina after a fender-bender causes them to meet.
The script allows the cast to really sink into the issues their breed of young adult faces in a world that is not ready to accept them despite the fact that they are finely crafted. They are over-educated and under-appreciated and cast into a world that doesn't `get' them. Each actor really grabs hold of their character and delivers a strong and passionate performance. Janeane Garofalo is wonderful as Vickie, really getting the sense of her characters fears and ambitions.Read more ›
This movie is about four friends who face life - Reality - right after college. Leleina's (Winon Ryder) speech at the beginning of the movie about what her generation is going to do with the damage they have inherited and a poignant "I dont know" as a response sum it up pretty well. She is the valedictorian of her college and an aspiring documentary film maker. She walks around with her camera filming her friends, asking them lots of personal and intimate questions about themselves and life in order to eventually create a documentary that will mean something. She wants to make a difference in the world and just like any hopeful college student, was imagining that she would "be somebody" after all the hard work she put in thus far.Read more ›
Spoiler Alert: Woman is treated like crap by a jerk and treated pretty respectfully by a nice guy... guess which one she chooses? The jerk of coarse. Though this does happen sometimes in real life especially with girls who are model types (I think the modeling business really whittles down the self-esteem of many women because the guys they choose are often complete tools) that's not really a reflection of reality for the most part. Whatever it is she saw in that guy I still don't understand even after watching the movie.
Don't get me wrong, the DVD is perfectly viewable, but I have seen other DVD's of similar length and features that were nearly Blu-Ray in sharpness. They could have done it better. Still, it's entirely adequate and typical of most transfers.

I was bored through the entire movie. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was nothing special and I wouldn't even give this movie 3 stars because it did nothing for me. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Alan C. Sides
the preview of this movie was deceptive; what a waste of good actors. I gave the movie to some neighbors who where very young and would not know any better.Published 4 months ago by lyleclassicpiano@yahoo
