Wondering why times are missing?

Way Off Broadway

While this ensemble-cast comedy is pretty much a low-budget indie film version of "Friends," it does manage to muster up its own scrappy appeal. We've basically got a group of twentysomething would-be artists—an out-of-work actress, a freeloading musician, an uninspired playwright and a couple of eternal grad students—all of whom spend their days eating, drinking, slacking off and generally commisserating. Although this sort of thing has been done a thousand times before (Reality Bites, anyone?), the snappy dialogue and surprisingly good cast keep it funny, light and engaging. It would have been nice if first-time filmmaker David Kay had shown a little more originality, but what are ya gonna do? 87 minutes
