Emergency Review: A Night of Epic Partying Takes an Unexpected Turn

Two African-American college students and their Latino roommate find an unconscious white girl on the floor of their house. Emergency turns the raucous laughter of a fun party film into a serious commentary on social issues. The film's tone changes dramatically as the fear of false accusations leads to poor decisions. The well-written characters represent different viewpoints on race and popular culture. Emergency also works as a satire on "blackness" and the serious repercussions of binge-drinking. A second act lull picks up with a thoughtful climax.
