One of my favourite movies, excellent acting, Matthew Lillard is one of my favourite actors, love him in this, love the plot and soundtrack.

Two punks in the eighties, decide they want to change things in their life and along the way cause a little anarchy in some places, and good Karma in others.
Forget the fact that the cover says Sid and Nancy meets John Hughes, that couldn't be further from the truth.
If you mix a little Boogie Nights, with Prick up your Ears, you get what in turn is this, a mildly diverting drama with excellent characters and Lillard breaking the fourth wall in what is arguably his greatest performance.
They are basically slackers, who argue with peers and superiors and cause a little bit of trouble. Some of the characters are interesting, Schweiger and Segel are standouts, others, random people doing random acts are not, become a little boring and a little too ironic, because after all, the late nineties was a time for ironic movies and left-field characters.
The ending is mighty predictable too, one dying, and then the other pursuing his Fathers dreams for him.
Watchable, but you'll get a screaming sense of Deja Vu
