A "hangout" movie where we focus on a group of characters and their day-to-day dealings. The actors all get a chance to spout quips at each other and converse on topical issues. I liked these scenes a great deal. The group has a nice easy charm about them. It's when the film tries to have an actual (cliched) plot that the charm fades.
