    As the characters mix and mingle, pouring out their tales of woe online and fumbling real-life connections, Weintrob leaves no cliché unturned in getting to root causes of behavior.
  2. 30
    Most of the action in this 2001 indie drama takes place on computer screens, with grainy faces framed by sharp little boxes; the 21st-century conceit is topical enough but the characters and their problems couldn't be more stale.
  3. 25
    It's really just about a bunch of pathetic losers whiling away the hours with their hands jammed down their pants.
  4. 20
    Indifferently written, passably acted, resourcefully shot in video with enlivening splashes of local color.
  5. There's something so familiar and commonplace about this story and its characters...it's hard to get particularly thrilled.
  6. Listless, self-absorbed slackers stare into computer monitors, groan about their lives and moan during cyber sex in On_Line. It makes you wonder, is there is a market for soft-porn movies for lonely geeks? Isn't that what computers are for in the first place?
