Critically ill, eccentric Jimmy (Matt D'Elia) makes a complete break from reality upon learning that his roommate James (Brendan Fletcher) is about to start a new job. Jimmy and James are not just roommates, but best friends as well. They share a trendy loft in downtown Los Angeles, and frivolously pass the days away drinking, doing drugs, having one-night stands, and playing board games. For Jimmy, it's the perfect way of life. But James craves structure, and in the morning he will start a new job. To Jimmy, it's the ultimate betrayal. Now, as the two close-knit roommates enter into a hysterical battle of wills while sharing their last day of freedom in the company of two beautiful women (Mircea Monroe and Angela Sarafyan), Jimmy becomes swept up in a complex vortex of emotions that push him ever closer to the brink of total insanity. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I really the concept of this movie, and most of the acting. It was the acting of Matt D'Elia that nearly ruins the movie. I just can't believe him as a person; the performance lacks subtlety. D'Elia also wrote and directed this movie -- and did both of those things very well.
This a great example of directors being very bad at directing themselves, especially in the lead role. You can't objectively judge yourself. I've never seen him in anything else, so I can't say altogether that he is a bad actor, but in the future shouldn't direct himself.
The movie was funny, but not goofy or wacky funny. It was really more of an uncomfortable, somewhat darker sort of humor. Jimmy's antics are a type of unhealthy escape for him.
Not recommended for those who are looking for a light laugh, but is worth watching if you like darker humor. There is some interesting psychology going on in it.
