Storyline

Opening in a Hollywood parking lot on New Years Eve as a crowd gathers around an ambulance as a guy is being loaded in on a gurney, the story is told in flashback by one of the characters to a female detective who comes on the scene of what may have been an attempted suicide and he unravels the story of a year in the lives of 6 guys who hang out in a blues bar in Hollywood, watch sports, trash talk, and bitch about their lives, as they go through problems ranging from construction nightmares to divorce, gambling addiction, alcoholism, child custody fights, and all the headaches and heartaches men go through in the course of their lives. As the story unfolds, the audience is left wondering which one of these guys ended up in the ambulance, and why. The blues soundtrack is true to the nature of the music itself, and to the movie, as it's about heartache and longing, loving and losing, striving and failing, and all the hell in between. And just like the blues, the movie is about joy and ... Written by Ian Gurvitz

Hummmm
27 August 2008 | by rstone-27See all my reviews

I've read some of the reviews prior to watching this movie. Most of them say its a good movie to watch. I do agree with that statement. The actors were excellent, the directing was great -- but the storyline hummmmmm.

I went away feeling kind of cheated. Its a bit like a Soap Opera that really never gets to the point. -- Don't get me wrong -- I did enjoy the trials and tribulations that the characters went through, the tight bond of friendship, and the inadequacies of their lives. Yet I just feel there should have been something else, something substantial to emanate from the frustrations, and difficulties that they went through.

All in all its not a waste of time. I gave it a strong 5 due to the fact that I did enjoy it, even though it leaves you feeling a bit empty. I also like all of the actors in this film, a strong cast but a weak story ending.
