Table One Review
By Christopher Null
Bad idea: Make a comedy with nothing but loser guys and no real female parts. Lots of people are gonna line up for that one (Jackass excepted).
The wafer-thin story here, about the misadventures of a group of guys who somewhat foolishly invested in a bar/restaurant and hang out there every night in the hopes of impressing the ladies. Needless to say, they impress no one and end up the same losers 90 minutes later.
What, you ask? Stephen Baldwin a loser? Certainly David Herman (the unforgettable "Michael Bolton" from Office Space) is no loser. It's true, dear readers. It's true.
Their story, as you can probably deduce, is far from memorable. It's just schticky dialogue designed to convince you of the leads' maleness and attempt to crack a few jokes. The film fails on both accounts, landing somewhere way out there while attempting to be both Swingers and The Sopranos. It's wasteland filmmaking at its finest.
