We are your friends is an extremely predictable movie about a DJ trying to make it big. As expected there’s a ton of drama, but unfortunately, most of it feels absolutely unwarranted and actually may end up giving you a headache. The characters are extremely uninspired and the movie features all the generic plot devices one can imagine (case in point being, hero with sidekicks, hero falls in love with gf/wife/mistress of guy who’s helping him, someone not really important to the story dies, etc). The only thing that acceptable in this extremely poor film are the actors. They’ve done a decent job throughout, but are sadly let down by the extremely boring plot and characters.


Cole is a struggling DJ who goes around college campuses with his friends handing out fliers for his gigs to attractive women. He’s not really making a mark and occasionally even working for free when he gets discovered by a guy called Reed. Reed offers to mentor cole and get him gigs around town. Cole gratefully accepts and decides to reward Reed’s faith in him by sleeping with his girlfriend. A fight ensues and Cole suddenly finds himself with no friends and no job. In the ensuing chaos, sidekick no.3 dies of a drug overdose. Cole finds this extremely inspiring (really) and decides to sort his “life” out.


The should give you an indication of the kind of garbage plot “We are your Friends” has. It’s not even fit to be called serviceable. The characters are also mostly very unlikeable despite the actors best efforts. This one is just not worth a watch on any count.
