Synopsis by Mark Deming
Most people want to have a good-looking date for their high school reunion, but four guys with more at stake than just pride scramble to find the right girl for the occasion in this comedy. Max (Brian Hooks), J-Ron (Troy Winbush), Drew (Darryl Brunson), and Jellyroll were four close friends in high school who shortly after graduation made a bet -- each man threw 50 dollars into the pot, and it was decided whoever brought the best-looking woman to their ten-year high school reunion would collect all the money. Ten years down the line, the guys discover that after ten years of smart investing, the two hundred bucks has become a whopping 50,000 dollars, but as their reunion looms on the horizon, none of them has a girlfriend, or even a steady date. With that much money at stake, all four are eager to find a sexy woman with an evening to spare, and they all end up looking on the internet, visiting chat rooms in search of an available knockout. It isn't long before that truth in advertising isn't all that common in the online dating game. Chat Room was written and directed by comic and actor Brian Hooks, who also stars as Max.
