An entertaining, but not always effective Generation X-satire!
4 January 2002 | by DJ InfernoSee all my reviews

Just saw this movie and my first thoughts were: "Better than "Kids", but not as great as "Trainspotting"..!". Gregg Araki´s film appears like an MTV-documentary (or an episode of "The Real Life") about an MTV-generation, whose imagination of life exists of sex, drugs, party and Playstation - a lifestyle which is fast and exciting, but after all also very surface and empty! Shot in the style of video clip the film makes a satire from the daily life of some Generation X-kiddies, which is often too loud and too exaggerated to be really effective! However, it´s like a small wonder not to be entertained by this movie! Even actors that I normally used to dislike, in the first line Ryan Phillipe or Denise Richards, don´t make bad impressions! And the rest of the supporting cast is really de luxe: Christina Applegate, Heather Graham, Beverly D´Angelo, Traci Lords, Shannen Doherty, Rose McGowan and especially John Ritter as television preacher refine this strange but quite enjoyable shot! I´d give 7 out of 10 for a funny bubble gum-satire, that nobody should take too serious..!
