A Poor Big Chill

Other than seeing a young Sandra Bullock looking cute in a film that was made before she was a star, there is not a lot of positive things I can say. Several young people share an apartment, joined together by Rae Dawn Chong's character, MJ (that in itself should be a tipoff because I cannot remember a Chong movie post-Commando). Tensions mount at the big party and MJ's self-destructive personality causes the friends to break up when the party ends including a couple that just got engaged during the party.

There are some uncomfortable scenes such as when Bullock's 16 year old brother jumps into bed with MJ and says that she will be the one to "deflower" him and then immediately falls asleep. Basically, the movie had the same effect on me!

Four of the main characters sit about, chatting - well chatting is a bit kind, reaming would be a better term - while they wait for a missing member of their house to return home.      The scene is filmed in black …

About this movie

Wiki

Sandra Bullock, Elizabeth Berridge, Rae Dawn Chong and Fisher Stevens star in this powerful and intimate look at success, friendship and sex in the 1990's. A group of young, sophisticated and beautiful friends are bent on having it all. Living together in an exclusive section of Los Angeles makes life one ongoing party. Their bodies are beautiful, their beds are busy, their careers are rising fast - especially for M.J. (Chong). Her charm and sexy good looks allow her to manipulate and use everyone around her, even her closest friends. But what happens when the party's over?
