I've gotten a LOT of shit from readers of this page who think I should be on me knees worshipping this movie.  I never said I hated it, I never said I liked it.  I said it was mediocre.  That's what it is.  It has some great parts (the romance aspect, and the kid above his head trying to be a journalist were great), but it also has some REALLY lame parts (the girl running into the pole, the guy admitting, in a sitcom-like way, that he's gay, when the plane was crashing, the dude jumping off the roof when he took too much acid, the mom being TOO MUCH OF A PARODY of overly-protective moms to be convincing) that left a sour taste in my mouth.  As I said, it is an average movie that has its ups and downs.  It didn't deserve ANY Academy Award nominations, much less any Academy Awards.  It's basically a two-hour episode of Friends with some rock and roll music.

I'd give it 5 Juicy squirts out of a possible 10
