From Amazon.co.uk

Director Doug Liman's follow-up to the winning Swingers is a rollicking adventure that, while lacking in any substantial plot, speeds along with non-stop adrenaline and style to burn. Taking a cue from Pulp Fiction, Liman plays tricks with time and overlapping plots, all of which play out in L.A. and Las Vegas in a 24-hour period sometime between Christmas and New Year's. Slacker grocery-store clerk Ronna (Sarah Polley) is trying to score rent money by selling hits of Ecstasy at a rave party, but winds up inadvertently double-crossing a ruthless dealer (sexy and scary Timothy Olyphant). She's also invading the dealing turf of her coworker Simon (Desmond Askew), a Brit on his first trip to Vegas, which turns nightmarish after a jaunt with pal Marcus (Taye Diggs) to a "gentleman's club" turns violent. And then there's the two soap-opera actors (Jay Mohr and Scott Wolf) who cross paths with Ronna more than once in their attempts to divest themselves of a drug-related charge by participating in a sting. The way Liman and writer John August layer these stories owes a huge debt to Quentin Tarantino, but the comedy and action sequences rocket like a bat out of hell with energy, humour, and genuine surprise. In addition to some hilarious dialogue exchanges--including a classic scene between Ronna's stoned friend (Nathan Bexton) and a Zen cat--Liman works wonders with one the most winning ensembles in recent memory, a cast that includes both established actors and TV cuties. Mohr, Diggs, and especially Polley (doing a 180 from her turn in The Sweet Hereafter) are as excellent as you'd expect, but it's Wolf (of Party of Five) and Dawson's Creek's Katie Holmes (as Polley's best bud) who turn in revelatory work; Holmes especially seems poised to be a breakout star. An amazing cinematic ride--like a roller coaster, you'll want to go back again and again. --Mark Englehart

This film combines modern filmmaking techniques only previously used by the likes of Quentin Tarantino. True it is similar to Tarantino's 1994 film 'Pulp Fiction', yet the only comparison being the "short story" method employed in both, and the razor sharp characters. I watched this film without prior knowledge, and admittedly was sceptical, and was pleasantly surprised.
Watching this film is a roller coaster ride, with the same weekend told from the viewpoint of various different characters in the film. Whether it is Ronna and her first attempt at drug dealing, the exploits of Simon (who makes a surprisingly good transition from the school yard of Grange Hill) and his friends in Las Vegas or the story behind Adam & Zack, and why they really went to Ronna in the first place.
All three storylines culminate into a believable ending and everything is brilliantly crafted together by director Doug Lyman (Swingers). Overall if you enjoy hip films featuring a young and vibrant cast then 'Go' see this film (credit to box for that pun).

This movie is absolutely brilliant. I would say its layout is original if it werent for Pulp Fiction, which it gets compared to constantly. I suppose its a soft-core Pulp Fiction! Take one eighteen-year old,sulky, skint supermarket cashier named Ronna, thrown in a stoner friend-Mannie, a concerned friend-Claire, an angry drug dealer, some chewable aspirin and a drugs bust and you have the first story. She faces the choice of either being evicted or dealing drugs to get some money- but everything seems to go wrong. This is undoubtedly the best of the three mini-tales. Apparently this was originally a short with just Ronnas tale, the other two were added later, and it shows because Ronnas story is just a teensy bit better than the others. Sarah Polley is alternately nice and bitchy as hard girl Ronna- but you still end up loving her. Katie Holmes' Claire is just a slightly more badass version of Joey- can she PLAY any other type of character? And Scream 2 killer Timothy Olyphant is suitably scary, funny and horny as drug dealer Todd. The second story revolves around Simon, an English guy going for a weekend in Vegas with some mates. This story involves group sex, tantric sexuality, a strip joint, a sexy red car, a car chase and Simon running through the hotel butt naked. Simon is the daft stoner who is ALWAYS getting himself and his friends into bother and he suceeds big time, managing to piss off half Las Vegas in the space of a few hours! This story will having you crying with laughter and falling off your seat with anticipation. Simon is loveable and dorky, and you can't help laughing at his stupid remarks and antics. The third story revolves around Adam and Zack, a pair of sexy gay actors who try to bust Ronna in order to get out of a charge themselves.Read more ›

I'd never heard of this film and only watched it because there was nothing else on. It turned out to be the most entertaining film I've seen in ages. It walked the fine line between the believable and the ludicrous - and sometimes life's really like that!

I saw the trailer. So then I saw the movie. It is definetly up there in my top movies of all time, just managing to rival American Beauty. I won't spoil the experience - you must view it for yourself. Take a look at Amazons review - it pretty much sums it up. What they haven't said, though, is that it rivals Pulp Fiction and any thing else in the genre. It's the sort of film that you can enjoy the shock first time, but it needs a good second viewing to get the whole picture, maybe even a third. Anyway, it doesn't matter - you'll be tempted to slot it into your VCR time and time again. No doubt... A good strong, well casted actors/actresses with a sometimes confusing script but an amazing plot. Tons of action, drugs, sexuality... and enjoyment! Miss it at your peril - you have to surpass all problems to view it.

Format: DVD
Those who relish the narrative style and humour of Pulp Fiction ought not overlook Go, Doug Liman's less well-known effort from just a few years later. Although ultimately unable to match Tarantino's celebrated narrative verve, budget, and overall flair for casting, upon re-viewing a decade later Go is still very watchable. Along with The Bourne Identity this is arguably the director's best film, out of a career that has also produced the potboiler Mr & Mrs Smith, such deeply guilty pleasures as Jumper and his very well-regarded debut Swingers. I know many have a warm spot for the latter. But I would turn to Go again more readily, it being unassuming, unpredictable - and made outside the demands of a commercial franchise.

Based around the experiences of associated Californian characters which include participants of a drugs deal that goes wrong, and set deftly over a 24 hour period, Go features three stories, each shot through with varying degrees of black humour and irony. In the first, Ronna Martin (Sarah Polley), a supermarket checkout worker threatened with eviction from her apartment, starts the plot ball rolling with an attempt to score some Ecstasy as a one-off to raise some cash. Her regular supplier is off on a trip to Las Vegas, so she takes the chance to bargain direct with dealer Todd Gaines (a splendid Timothy Olyphant). In second strand, entitled `Simon', we see Ronna's supplier and co-worker (Desmond Askew) on his trip to Vegas and the outrageous events that occur there, and then back home. The third part,`Adam & Zeck', is about two gay TV actors, inveigled by the police to help with a drugs bust. The last part of the film brings much of what has happened together to form a conclusion.
