Snappy, romantic "Gen X" comedy centers on the lives, dreams, and relationships of four twentysomething roommates--aspiring filmmaker Lelaina (Winona Ryder), grunge rocker Troy (Ethan Hawke), convenience store worker Vickie (Janeane Garofalo), and closeted slacker Sammy (Steve Zahn)--in Houston, Texas. When yuppie TV executive Michael Grates (Ben Stiller, who also directed) shows interest in Lelaina's work--and in her--the foursome's bonds are threatened. With Swoosie Kurtz, Joe Don Baker. 99 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Digital Surround; Subtitles: Spanish; audio commentary by Stiller; deleted scenes; featurette; music video.
