It's A Late Night

  • Jun 11, 2006
I can never ever catch Suburbia at a decent time, every time I see it it's when I'm pulling an all nighter on some work and HBO just feels like putting it on at 1am. Maybe Suburbia is not as good of a movie I think it is but my insomnia makes it 20 times funnier than it is. This movie shows some of the problems suburban kids go through like having to deal with a guy from high school that went on to do better than you coming back. Then he makes your life seem as small as the 7-11 you stand in front of most of the day. Plus going around for an entire night thinking you killed a girl only to find out that she just passed out. Suburbia makes lives little problems a joke even if they didn't intend for the movie to be funny it is.

It's basically about a bunch of kids in there late teens walking around doing and saying the craziest and dumbest things and all because they have nowhere to go and nothing to do. Giovanni's character has to be my favorite, he's always nervous and complaining about dumb things, but even worse for him he finds out that his girlfriend might be leaving him for the kid from school that became a star. I love this movie because even though its conflicts seem little it shows that those little things can drive you crazy. As boring as the concept may sound the actors boost the comedy up so I say it's about time to give this movie a DVD.
