  1. 200 Cigarettes doesn't have a bad scene or a false note. The picture is a succession of pointed little moments, nicely written by Shana Larsen and acted with comic assurance and sensitivity.
  2. A light comedy, pure and simple (and hardly unfamiliar), but its makers sustain its energy through the unraveling of an intricate plot and bring to it a certain edge through a witty, sharp sense of observation.
  3. Very much a looking-back movie; its most obvious model is "American Graffiti." But if you know that particular slice of early '80s Manhattan, you may be as amused as I was. [26 Feb 1999]

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 comedy has all of the characters interacting on the same night. Some of the comedy is awkward so that is why the movie isn't a comedic masterpiece. However, if you're seeking a movie with talented actors and a totally diverse atmosphere, this is the movie for you. Full Review »

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 »
