It's the late 1980s, when Wall Street is riding high, and it seems as if the entire country is cashing in on the bumper profits. Disgusted with the materialism that surrounds him, Matt Franklin, a brilliant young MIT graduate, has walked out on his well-paid position at a local lab and taken a low-level job as a video clerk, much to his father Bill's consternation. And the crises keep piling up in Matt's life. His best buddy Barry has just gotten fired from his job, his brainy sister Wendy is getting hitched to her vapid boyfriend Kyle, and the gorgeous Tori Frederking, long-time object of Matt's unattainable adoration, is suddenly back in the picture. Now, on one wild, woolly and irresponsible evening, everything is coming to a head, with explosive results.
Best. Night. Ever.

I'm... I'm just messed up, OK? I don't know what I want to do. And I'm sorry I'm such a fucking failure!
You haven't really failed, son, because you haven't really tried to succeed. So don't credit yourself as a failure. You're worse than that.
I just can't figure it out, Dad.
Don't cry like that in jail, son.
