We gave it a C

This story of a bunch of college grads sleepwalking through their lives never figures out if it wants to be an honest depiction of burgeoning adulthood or a dumb comedy about guys trying to pick up chicks. Mihok (The Thin Red Line) displays a quiet vulnerability as a responsible lug frustrated by his dead-end job at the local pizzeria, but the film seems more interested in capturing his doltish buddies’ drunken antics. Eventually, you realize you’re just watching another humdrum youth comedy — complete with Matthew Lillard as a spastic yuppie jerk. C
