Divorced father Jonathan is a physician whose practice is largely made up of wealthy patients for who he writes prescriptions for drugs for recreational use in return for payola. Party boy Richard was once a novelist, but now resorts to teaching high school English to make a living. Stockbroker Ron is happily married with kids, but in providing for his family, he decided to steal from his clients which has now resulted in a probable indictment by the Securities Commission for embezzlement. And five years ago, openly bisexual Tim was the driver that caused an accident which killed both his sister and his boyfriend, the guilt surrounding which still remains with him. As they live in various parts of the country, they make a point to get together at least once a year for a week, this year’s gathering at a rented beachfront house in Big Sur to celebrate Tim’s birthday. Their get-togethers are to escape the responsibilities of their everyday lives, by reliving their former frat boy days of drugs, sex and partying. An incident that occurs half way through their scheduled time together leads to them examining their lives, and deciding individually and collectively if they will keep true to a pact they made twenty-five years ago. Their situation is complicated by their encounters with the local sheriff, Officer Boyde.
Plot: Former college friends meet up for a reunion that leads them to face the apparent disillusionment that defines their lives. After a week of excessive drug and alcohol abuse, events lead them to contemplate fulfilling a self destructive pact they made when they were young.

A masterpiece, and stupid at the same time.
I didn’t have this much mixed emotions for a film in a long, long time. The film blew my mind. I will divide it in two parts. As the film lasts two hours in total, let’s divide it in an hour each.
The first hour is a masterpiece. Such good acting, dialog, scenery, the director, Mark Pellington, has truly made a masterpiece. I did not see such good ”camerawork” in a long time. The actors, could have not acted better. I was stunned by the chemistry between them. It truly is, if you don’t mind the theme of the story, a fantastic ‘drive’ through the first hour. The soundtrack, was also stunning as well. For the first part of the movie, had it not have changed through the second part, it would have been an 11/10. By the virtuosity of the complete package, a flawless portion of the film, with amazing realistic relations and events.
After things go wrong, in more ways then one, the movie kinda goes on another road. Not that it’s a bad road, but the execution was bad. A story, that I could not completely believe, kinda left a bad taste in my mouth. To end it all like they did, was in my opinion, a bad way, and the film simply goes downhill.
Why the incredibly high score then? Because it was beautiful. It was stunning, and as others pointed out, not for the emotionally weak or those who live in a glass house, not involved with real life problems and tragedies we all endure during our daily lives. To put it in overused terms, it’s simply epic, and emotionally draining.
Not sure why everybody is hating on this movie.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that the target market for this movie is over 40 and male (I might throw ‘white’ in there as well but I’m not sure about that). If you don’t fall into this demographic you probably are not going to dig this movie. I don’t think this is necessarily a bad thing tho- people make movies for certain audiences all the time.
I don’t usually write reviews but I felt like there was too much hate for this movie out there. It tells a story, the acting is good, the movie making is good, there are a few parts that are not completely clear- I’m not sure if that is writing or editing or directing.
Depending on how you look at the movie you might consider it a psych study on a group dynamic amongst males over time. You might see some of yourself in the characters- and you might not. if you don’t, the movie might seem awfully self indulgent. If you do, the movie becomes a warning or a dark fantasy or something else. Definitely not boring tho and definitely not a “chick flick”.
