For anyone who has faced the real world, and promptly ran away from it.
Kicking and Screaming is hilarious and depressing all at once, as it follows the lives of recent college graduates who simply cannot move on with their lives. Sharing a house near campus, they eventually get sucked back into their old routines: hitting on freshman girls, drinking at the same bar, and even re-enrolling in courses. This lifestyle can't continue forever, though, and soon each character must make some choices that allow them to go forward, however reluctantly that may be. While the plot revolves around the romance between Grover and Jane, the most enjoyable and funny moments come from scenes where the housemates are just hanging out together, expounding on their somewhat pitiful lives.

Great performances by all, including Chris Eigeman (who you might recognize from various Whit Stilman films or TV's "It's like, you know..."), Parker Posey (always crazy and hilarious), and Eric Stoltz, as the bartender who has been attending college for over a decade...a frightening glimpse of things to come.
