In the grand tradition of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Up in Smoke and Dazed and Confused, comes the epic slacker comedy Bongwater.
Struggling artist David (Luke Wilson) has big plans for his life... except he can't exactly remember what they are.
When slinky, sassy Serena (Alicia Witt) waltzes into his life things take a definite turn for the better, that is, until his house burns down and she bolts to New York with a wannabe rock star (Jamie Kennedy). While Serena frolics back east, lovesick David gets by with a little help from his friends... like singing farmer (Jack Black), hilariously sarcastic sidekick (Andy Dick) and oversexed rich girl (Brittany Murphy). If Serena ever returns, someone's gonna get a rude awakening, as this raucous comedy hurtles toward an outrageous and unexpected finish!

cast, but was sorely let down when subjected to a rather
banal script and disjointed action.
The movie is low in the laugh dept. and would really
call this more of a drama, as it tackles a corny romance,
along with the buzz-kills of a house fire and rape.
Would not recommend this movie to friend or foe
alike, though I would recommend a very funny stoner
movie in "Smiley Face".
Alicia Witt's character is really the lead character in this film, which has duel main characters. Wilson's character is messed up when Witt's character begins hanging around the house. The entire movie revolves around the personality of Alicia Witt that is playing a Gemini that cannot keep herself out of trouble. If you don't get the astrology, you won't like the film. The whole film revolves around Witt's character traits; she is clever, likes to tinker, cannot shut up, and lies. She claims she is a Pisces when she is not because she enjoys trickery. She also gets herself into trouble because she likes to play games and cannot handle boredom. If you do not enjoy that aspect of the movie, there is nothing to this film.
I would say that the strong points of the movie are the realistic sex relationships, Witt's character, and the inclusion of couples that are not heterosexual. It is intended to look like an average neighborhood with people that behave more realistically than typical love stories. They have enormous problems and are not where they want to be in their lives. I am not sure how this film is going to pull off a comedy; some of the scenes are amusing because life is somewhat amusing at times. No comedy that I know includes a rape scene and it isn't entirely a comedic show. If the film displays any meaningful message at all it is that of people living their lives, while the movie portrays a negative image of drug users, and it is not intended to condone drug use. It is more or less emphasizing the positive traits of people who partake in a liberal culture while also depicting what is wrong with stoning. I like the film.
