I can't say Less Than Zero is a good movie. I can't say that it's even got good performances. However. If you have EVER been curious, or currently are curious about using cocaine, I encourage you strongly to watch this movie. There is 90 percent chance or higher that you will not want to use it after watching this. I was 13 years old when I watched this, and wow, did it scare the crap out of me. The ending was a bit sad, but this is true to real life events then could happen, so the script demands that it be taken seriously, no matter how bad this film has aged. Again, if you've ever been curious about using cocaine, this movie will prevent you from using it. I can bet my 401k on it. Enjoy,
