| Fascinating and Hard to Shake
I loved watching these people and the power dynamics created by a group of immature dude friends who bring a new 'date' every Saturday night to the same diner to eat cold fries, drink bad coffee, and talk smack. The girls are temporary fixtures in their world of male aggression and slacker love. How they go along with the jokes, abuse, hugs, and bonding makes for an ever changing landscape of desire and disgust. The group is always right, until one of them tries to assert their independence and momentarily offers a different opinion, and then they in turn become isolated from the others. The alliances shift throughout the film, though the one constant is being alone in a crowd.

Although the film is mostly eight kids sitting around a large booth talking, a few detours have the group interact with a lone diner they taunt who just wants to be ignored, a self-loathing waitress who puts on an act as a people-pleaser, a couple of drug fiends who bully their way into handouts, and a sexed up producer lady who makes movies and makes out.

The audience makes out pretty well too.
