In this dark, gritty, mean-spirited, but well-made comedy-drama, Veronica (Sandra Oh) is an superficial, entitled housewife dealing with her home life. Ashley (Anne Heche) is a self-obsessed, misanthropic, artist dealing with her career and her life partner Lisa (Alicia Silverstone) who wants to raise a baby. Veronica and Ashely's paths cross at a party hosted by Veronica's husband, which the two cynical woman's long-buried rivalry comes to the surface which leads to a brutal cat-fight where Veronica ends up in the hospital in a coma.

Not a bad movie but the advertisements really do this an injustice and is not what you expect. More depressing than funny.
"I lost everything because of you." Veronica (Oh) and Ashley (Heche) were good friends in college but have grown apart and their lives are in very different places. Veronica is a trophy wife who likes to drink and Ashley is a struggling artist. When they meet up again after many years old emotions come up and a chain of events begins that changes each others lives in ways no one could have imagined. This is a movie that is difficult to define. It is billed and advertised as a comedy. On one hand there are parts in this that I did laugh at but it felt really wrong. Saying this is a dark comedy is an understatement at best. On the other hand, this is one of the most depressing movies I have ever seen. The moments that make you smile are immediately followed by ones that leave you shocked and fighting back tears. This is a movie where I was really confused as to why this is labeled as a comedy. Overall, this is not a bad movie but the advertisements really do this an injustice and is not what you expect. More extremely depressing than funny. Decent but hard to recommend. I give this a C+.
