FAQs is a 2005 movie that follows the story of four people who find themselves stranded in an elevator. The movie is directed by Everett Lewis and stars Joe Lia, Allan Louis, and Lance Lee Davis. The movie opens with a group of individuals who get into an elevator. Among the group is a young couple, a businessman, and a homeless man. The elevator suddenly stops and the four of them are stranded inside. As they begin to realize that they might be stuck for a while, they start to get to know each other.

The young couple, played by Joe Lia and Jeanie McCarthy, are on their way to meet their friends for dinner. They are both in their early twenties and seem to be very much in love. The businessman, played by Allan Louis, is a successful lawyer who is always on the go. He is the complete opposite of the young couple and seems to be annoyed by their presence. The homeless man, played by Lance Lee Davis, is a mystery. He doesn't reveal much about himself at first and seems to be lost in his own thoughts.

As time ticks by and the elevator remains stuck, the group starts to get restless. The businessman tries to call for help but realizes that his cell phone has no reception. The young couple starts to panic, fearing that they will never make it to their dinner reservation. The homeless man remains quiet and appears to be unaffected by the situation.

As the group starts to get desperate, they begin to reveal secrets about themselves. The young couple admits that they have been struggling with their relationship lately. The businessman reveals that he has been having an affair with his secretary. The homeless man finally speaks up and tells his story. He was once a successful businessman but lost everything due to his own greed and addiction to drugs.

As the night wears on, the group starts to bond. They share food and water and even start to joke around. However, their situation becomes more and more dire as time goes on. The elevator starts to shake and make strange noises. The young couple becomes hysterical and the businessman tries to keep them calm.

FAQs is a movie that explores the human condition. It shows how people from different walks of life can come together in a crisis and form a bond. The characters are well developed and the acting is solid. The movie also deals with themes such as love, betrayal, and redemption.
