Director/cinematographer Doug Liman's third feature links together three edgy stories, all beginning in the same Los Angeles supermarket with an interconnected group of characters. Ronna (Sarah Polley) is a down-on-her-luck checkout girl who is sweet talked into taking an extra shift from her friend Simon (Desmond Askew) so he can go to Las Vegas. Ronna is then approached by two good-looking actors, Adam (Scott Wolf) and Zack (Jay Mohr), who want to buy drugs. Ronna, who needs money, plans to act as a go-between between the actors and a dealer friend of Simon's, Todd (Timothy Olyphant), until a cop named Burke (William Fichtner) enters the picture. Meanwhile, Simon is living it up in Vegas; in the course of a very wild night on the town, he manages to bed two women, accidentally steal a car with his good friend Marcus (Taye Diggs), and get thrown out of the best strip club in town, with more than a few people after him, especially when he leaves behind a credit card he borrowed from Todd. Once again back at the supermarket, Adam and Zack turn out to not be quite what they seemed, and their relationship with Burke and his wife Irene (Jane Krakowski) takes an unexpected turn as their evening becomes very, very complicated. Go, Liman's long-awaited follow-up to his indie hit Swingers, received its World Premiere at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Three very different sets of people become strangely intertwined with three storylines crossing over Los Angeles and Las Vegas over one night.
I liked this movie, thought it was a fun and entertaining time through and through. Doug Liman really shows off how well he knows Los Angeles and Las Vegas, and the cast is really well-rounded, with a particularly good performances by Sarah Polley, Timothy Olyphant, and William Fitchner . Also, the car chase scene is really well done, it had been a long time since I had been actually excited by a car chase scene, which have been so overdone.

Entertaining, well-acted, well-shot; sure it's somewhat of a "teen movie" but really well done, especially the "third act."

Over The Top & Out Of This World !!!
Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something completly different. Movies that are off beat, over the top, or just plain "campy". Recomended for a Friday or Saturday night.
This is your movie on drugs..
each movie is about a different drug from alcohol to smack
