200 Cigarettes (guest)

MOVIE:  200 Cigarettes

GUEST:  Nathan Arizona

NUTSHELL:  It’s December 31, 1981 in Manhattan and a bunch of people are trying desperately to hook up for New Year’s Eve.

GOOD THINGS:  Dialogue, excellent ’80s soundtrack, Elvis Costello cameo, random drag queen that for some reason just strikes me as funny

BAD THINGS:  Bathroom stall sex, vindictive ex-girlfriends

FEATURES:  Janeane Garafolo, Courtney Love, Christina Ricci, Martha Plimpton, Dave Chappelle, Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck, Jay Mohr, Kate Hudson, Paul Rudd, Angela Featherstone, Nicole Ari Parker, Gaby Hoffman, Guillermo Diaz (I just like saying “Guillermo”)

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Martha Plimpton licking Elvis Costello’s glasses, Kate Hudson with dog shit smeared on her back.

NOTABLE:  With Grosse Pointe Blank and The Wedding Singer, makes sort of an unofficial trilogy of late ’90s releases that have ’80s themes.

BEST PART:  Jay Mohr waking up to realize he’s de-flowered a high-school girl; Dave Chappelle’s narration of the Polaroid montage at the end.

BEST LINE:  These matches are disappointing me!

CROWNS:  4 out of 5
