Seven friends - Alec, Billy, Jules, Kevin, Kirby, Leslie and Wendy - are trying to navigate through life and their friendships following college graduation. Alec, who aspires to political life, has just shown his true colors by changing his allegiance from Democrat to Republican, which freaks out girlfriend Leslie, who he wants to marry. Budding architect Leslie, on the other hand, has an independent streak. She believes she has to make a name for herself to find out who she is before she can truly commit to another person in marriage. But Leslie and Alec have decided to live together.

This is a quintessential 80's film. Filled with all the yuppie, self-indulgent longings that we would expect from a 1985 brat-packer movie. I cannot say it is cinematic brilliance, but I guess it is kind of cute in a sophomoric way. Most of the characters are either of weak moral standing, or are hopelessly in love with someone unavailable. Even Wendy- the only one not slacking or immoral is in love with pretty boy Billy- the biggest slacker, womanizer of the bunch. Worth watching just to see what NOT to become after graduating from college.
