Storyline

Bill is the guest of honor as the "Man of the Year". A very successful head of a large energy firm, he is a man with many dark secrets. His best friend, Stuart, hosts the party at his ritzy ultra modern Hollywood Hills home. During the course of the night, secrets will be revealed, trusts will be broken and relationships will change forever. Join them, their wives, their lovers, their friends, and their enemies for a night they'll never forget as the guests discover that Bill is not the man they thought he was and his carefully constructed life begins to crumble like a house of cards. This entire revolutionary digital feature, shot in one location and based on a concept created by Straw Weisman, was shot with twenty-five highly skilled improv actors, a character outline, and no script, in just ONE EXTRAORDINARY NIGHT!

Reg: Your gambling on baseball? What are you, stupid?
Bill: Well, you know man, I know it's not polo, but fuck, it's America's past time.

SLAMDUNK!
20 January 2003 | by moviestar-7See all my reviews

I just saw this movie with a full house at Slamdunk. A totally daring movie. They really pulled it off! Great performances all improv. Very Cool Well Done. I especially liked the Pineapple. It's also very funny albeit dark humor. John Ritter is really Good.
