Awkward rehash of Pulp Fiction has lame-brained characters running around sunny California in search of a life. Trust me, they never find one. Acting is a plus, especially a delightful Glenne Headly, but in general the cast is over-performing the kinds of characters that are in the background of better movies, leaving a film that is little more just a collection of rambling monologues; perhaps the scene in which we’re treated to the sight of Eric Stoltz getting a raging hard-on at a massage parlour will gather interest.
