Three girls, Margo, Kelly, and Cece are roommates living in Los Angeles and enjoying the vibrant and decadent night life of 1980s Los Angeles. Margo (Zuniga) has a boring job in telemarketing, Cece (Gibb) gets fired from her job at a department store, while Kelly (Madsen) works in a pet store and is very good at selling pets, mainly thanks to her looks.
It's Friday night and the girls are getting ready for a night out on the town, however Margo and Cece soon discover that Kelly has taken Margo's car to go meet a DJ she's infatuated with. Luckily, Kelly's date for the night, Clifford (Rohner, in a dual role), one of her many infatuated customers, arrives to pick her up, so Margo and Cece hitch a ride with him to go to the club where the DJ is working.Cliffie (as Cece calls him) reluctantly tags along a roller-coaster ride with them and learns how the girls usually spend their nights out.
Meeting rock star Bruno X (Rohner), surviving a police raid, getting dumped by DJ Brad, taking a trip on Ecstasy, escaping from crazed fans and a run-in with a sexual criminal are some of the situations the group gets themselves into.
