Meghan (Elizabeth Banks) is a reporter in L.A., but is sure she’s getting a job with the network as an anchor. But when the job goes to someone else, her friends talk her into a night of partying at a club. Meghan ends up having way too much to drink and ends up somewhere in the scary area of L.A. in a guys apartment with a voice mail letting her know the network changed their mind, but need to see here this morning. She heads out in a journey of enormous adventure through the ghetto on foot trying to get back to the station in time.

I didn’t expect a lot out of this little comedy, but I was impressed. Elizabeth Banks actually really nailed this. It’s a really funny film. The jokes start out right away, and never drop off. The situations she finds herself in are quite amusing. I thought it might be a bit silly, but it really wasn’t. As an LA resident, many of the things hit close to home. It’s not very deep and it is very predictable, but it was really surprisingly interesting. There are some additional characters that are really funny, but I don’t want to give that away, but the friends she makes along the way are awesome. Everyone pitches in to help her out and by the time she finally gets out of the streets, she’s learned a lot about herself and who her real friends are. This is an adult comedy, but it’s a lot of fun and worthy of wasting an hour and a half of time if you really want something amusing.
