  1. This vapid '80 punk party reeks of 200 Cigarettes.

    As forgettable as a puff off a generic-brand butt: filtered, flavored, and ultimately unsatisfying.

    David Chappelle's performance as a cabbie is amusing, but the film should have been packaged with a Surgeon General's Warning - "Cigarettes is bad for you."
  4. Not much of a plot, but the trouble is that Shana Larsen's script, as directed by Risa Bramon Garcia, isn't very deep. Worse, none of the self-absorbed characters are that likable nor are they funny.

    Dreadful...Maybe another 200 cigarettes would have helped; coughing would be better than some of this dialogue.
  6. The film is filled with actors you want to see -- just not in this thing.

    Dismally unfunny...It's clear from the first few minutes that the performers are fighting an uphill battle against lame material, and the situation never improves as pic labors on.

    More of a throwback to a period in the '70s when big-screen comedies like "FM" and "Thank God It's Friday" seemed to take all their cues from bad sitcoms, putting rice-paper-flat characters into vibrant settings and giving them nothing to do but exchange faux witty dialogue without the much-needed cues of a laugh track.
  9. A twentysomething comedy with a brain-dead script, unflattering lighting and 16 performers in search of a scriptwriter...[It] feels like one-sixth of an idea stretched to the breaking point.

    Certainly not for everyone, its humour is awkward and does not leave a lasting impression. Rudd, Love and Chapelle dominate the film's key moments, which are limited, and some quotes will come in use for the odd house party. An interesting twist to conclude, and 100 minutes of prolonged conversation, nicotine intake and lack of anything stable wraps up in something that's alright if you've got nothing else lying around.

    This movie has a little bit of everything for everyone. It's a period piece for some of us old enough to have lived it. It's a quirky romp through our early relationships and at the very least, it's pretty funny. Full Review »
