A group of acerbic, angst-ridden twenty-somethings hang out at a local convenience store complaining the night away, until a visit by a rock star who went to school with them causes them all to re-examine their lives. Starring Parker Posey ("Superman Returns," "A Mighty Wind"), Steve Zahn ("Chain of Fools," "Out of Sight") and Giovanni Ribisi ("Gone in Sixty Seconds," "Saving Private Ryan"). From hip director Richard Linklater ("A Scanner Darkly," "Waking Life") and writer Eric Bogosian ("Talk Radio").

Great Surprise

Being that I've never heard of this movie, along with the fact that no one has reviewed it, I figured I might be in for a huge disappointment. This was not the case. I got a great movie with interesting, unique dialogue and a creative, realistic story progression. Really well done.


Well I love this movie...I love the acting...i love the writing...I love the social interactions...its funny...its deep...its a slice of America baby! This is exactly why I love movies...take ur Transformers...and All ur Comic book nonsensical movies and shove'em...this is my type of movie...its a brilliant film by a brilliant mind.

In a way, this takes me back

This movie reminds me of my teen years in many respects. We wasted life getting messed up and hung out along the side of stores talking about nothing that felt inherently meaningful. We were punks, goths, druggies, and drunks. Some of us ran with gangs and others strictly partied. It certainly is not a pretty picture, but that was a life I remember and this movie portrayed big portions of that quite well.
