Ryder is good, but you have to wonder why she would chose such an asshole like Hawke over Stiller, who turns out to be a nice guy. Janeane Garafolo is the only stand-out as Ryder's best friend. She seems to get all the good lines. My point is this. I think that this was almost totally unrealistic. The basic message is simple. The youth of Gen-X doesn't like the world they're getting. Don't stop those presses. Most people of Gen-X, Baby Busters, whatever biased word you'd like to use, aren't people with short attention spans, working in Burger King. Most are just hard working people who have the same hopes and dreams as the Baby Boomers did. Reality Bites sure doesn't show such hope. All it shows is that you can rebel against your Dad by overspending on his gas card.
