One Night At McCool's (2001) - Synopsis

One Night at McCool's (2001)

It all started one night at McCool's... three unsuspecting men and one woman with a dream are brought together by lust, mayhem, bingo, DVDs, and the finer points of home decorating.

One Night at McCool's (2001) is a sexy, rapid-fire black comedy; and the first project from actor/producer Michael Douglas' production company, Furthur Films

McCool's bar was hopping that night. Randy (Matt Dillon) worked there, tending bar. Lawyer Carl (Paul Reiser) was there until past closing. Detective Dehling (John Goodman) got there once McCool's became a crime scene. Was it the dead body that tied these men together? Not as tightly as the live wire who was also there that night: the stunning young woman aptly named Jewel (Liv Tyler).

Before the night was over, she had become all the three men could think about: she moved in on/with one, made the other forget his (living) wife, and made the third forget his (dead) wife. As one of the men would point out in a rare moment of clarity, "The sex and the violence, all in one night - it's a little much." With a woman like Jewel, there was more - much more! - to come. Jewel was more trouble than these three men were worth and what she wanted was bigger than all of them put together.

A steamy story told from three very different points of view that ultimately become one, One Night at McCool's (2001) marks the feature film debut of acclaimed commercials director Harald Zwart.
