Reality Bites

Oh, gen-Xers really like this film that supposedly identifies with their generation, but speaking strictly as a movie, it ain't so great. The film revolves around a group of college graduates who not only have a remarkably difficult time finding jobs, but a hard time finding their identity. I didn't find this film particularly profound. However, it is entertaining and the good cast is this film's strongest point. If you love this movie for its insight on the 90's gen-X culture, then good for you. (Gen-Xers aren't the only ones who like "My Sharona!")
