The Big Chill gets all serious-like (think Woody Allen in his lousy, "serious" days) when four adults converge on a Hamptons-esque home for a weekend, rubbing one another entirely the wrong way. A squabble over $50 and the nature of computer-generated music becomes a launching pad for innuendo, which might have been enticing had any of the characters been interesting. The exception is Caroleen Feeney, cast as a vamp and used rather one-dimensionally, but she's still quite a heartbreaker. Based on Gilman's play Ghost in the Machine.
