Storyline

Tongue-in-cheek look at 20-something singles clubbing and partying in L.A.; it's organized into 15 chapters from overview and preparation to partying and the morning after. Voice-over narration, charts and graphs, and visits to a research laboratory punctuate the story of a single night when groups of friends go out, drink alcohol, take drugs, dance and talk, and look for someone to go home with. Dangers, minor and major, await those who don't plan well or behave foolishly, and the rewards, even for those who plan well, are few. But the species' survival may depend on these rituals.

the people who say it wasn't good, haven't REALLY partied, great movie
19 August 2008 | by evoalexSee all my reviews

just finished watching B&G's guide... awesome movie. I've seen myself in so many of those scenarios in real life... and people who say this only happens in L.A. haven't lived in Las Vegas, because living here in Vegas is this movie time and time again. Your talking about the number one party city in the world. This stuff happens on a daily basis over here. Back to the movie though, great movie and explained the scene great. Loved the house party scenes. I would give an A to the director, especially for being one of his first films... If you haven't seen this movie i definitely suggest going to go watch it, especially if your in the party scene.
