Mostly repugnant story from first-time writer-director Hunter Richards involving a dissolute twentysomething New Yorker (Chris Evans) who crashes his ex-girlfriend's (Jessica Biel) bon voyage party, but takes refuge in the bathroom to avoid facing her, all the while snorting cocaine and engaging in mostly foul-mouthed discussions with an Englishman (Jason Statham) and other guests who drift in and out. Though ostensibly a cautionary look at the excesses of today's affluent youth, with some serious talk about the meaning of life and even a marginally redemptive ending, the sordid milieu, non-stop expletives, sexuality, and drugs result in a thoroughly distasteful and surprisingly dull melange. Pervasive rough and crude language, drug use, strong sexual content and perversity, partial and rear nudity, violence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
