  • Summary: Set over a 24-hour period in L.A. and Las Vegas, this unconventionally structured comedy is told from the decidedly off-center perspectives of three parties involved in the outrageous events that surround a botched drug deal. (Columbia TriStar)

    Breakneck, raucous and thoroughly exhilarating.
  2. Manages to present rave youth's on-the-go attitude as well as "Swingers" exposed its hipster culture.
  3. 90
    John August's script is exciting, witty, original material, and this film's got the talent to match.
  4. Like circus acrobats who bounce up smiling, the characters end up on their feet, and you realize in retrospect that they survived because somebody, finally, stopped to think. A final thought on Go: Go.
  5. A nasty little picture with a lot of wit and impudence.
  6. 70
    A showy exercise in nervous grit, Go never strays too far from a sense of itself as stunt.
  7. 40
    Escapism of the worst sort, a manipulative exercise in style that preys on the passivity of its characters and its audience. In the end, Go offers little more than the sour, impermanent rush of a pixie stick.

    Go is unlike any film you have ever seen and I loved every second of it! This unique comedy, from Swingers director, Doug Liman, follows a bunch of people who connect in a supermarket and follow them on their craziest weekend ever. The story is told in four parts, and follow these inevitably connected people from four different angles. As each of their stories are told, the story gets clearer and even more hilarious. This movie was a first for many TV stars on the big screen like Katie Holmes, Scott Wolf, and Jay Mohr, but it's the newcomers like Sarah Polley and Desmond Askew that make this film work. Honestly, this film has everything. It's a great story, action-packed, and hilarious, I can't recommend it enough! Expand

    Go is one of the coolest movies from 1999. The movie has black comedy and plenty of thrills. The movie is
    really underrated and has hilarious
    characters and witty dialogue. The movie is a great experience because
    the movie was expertly made, A+.

    Go is one of the slickest and funniest comedy-dramas you will see. The movie follows three perspectives of a drug deal gone awry. The first perspective is Ronna, a cashier at a grocery store. The second perspective is Simon, also a cashier at the same grocery store. Simon knows Ronna, and Ronna decides to cover one of his shifts so he can go to Las Vegas for the weekend. Simon gets into shenanigans in the second part of the movie with his friends from L.A. The third perspective is from Adam and Zack who are actors in Los Angeles. They come into the store and are looking to be hooked up with some drugs. Simon isn't there so they approach her. She tells them she'll help. Ronna goes to Simon's dealer to buy the drugs. She is about to be evicted from her apartment unless she acquires the money in time. The multiple angles is really interesting because most movies don't show scenes more than once. When you see the scenes on the second occasions you see what you missed, the movie fills in the details. I'm not going to spoil the movie because the movie is very enjoyable with the less you know. The movie is intricate and will instantly become one of your favourite movies. There are many surprises in the movie. Go has everything a filmgoer could desire. Expand

    Go has great acting, comedy and action. The movie was made in a non-linear way and I love non-linear
    movies like Go and Memento. The movie is
    amazing from start to finish. The music in the movie is also
    a character in the movie. The movie has one of the best soundtracks for a movie, every song adds to
    the quality of the movie.

    "Go" is one of the most entertaining movies about nothing. Director Doug Liman (Swingers) does a great job directing this fast paced adventure.
