The performances are all just fine; I wish they'd been at the service of another movie.

A surprisingly sweet romantic comedy debut from Ben Stiller.

By spinning something fresh out of something familiar, Reality Bites scores the first comedy knockout of the new year. It also brings out the vibrant best in Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke as friends who resist being lovers, makes a star of Janeane Garofalo as their tart-tongued buddy and puts Ben Stiller on the map as a director.
