Movie Reviews

Crispin Glover saves Fast Sofa from being unwatchable
Z. Freeman | Austin, TX | 03/16/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Fast Sofa starts out very unpromisingly. An agonizingly long sequence of Jake Busey and Natasha Lyonne sexing it up intercut with shots of Jennifer Tilly as a porn star moaning in one of her videos. All of it with some mediocre rock playing over it. Talk about bad beginnings.

The first 45 minutes of Fast Sofa are filled with poorly acted scenes and seem to lack any sense of meaning or purpose. Adam Goldberg's character is almost entirely unnecessary. What saves this move right at the "time to switch it off" breaking point is the entrance of Crispin Glover.

With short, red, '50's styled hair, a slightly sun-burned face, a lazy eye, and a wool suit, Crispin Glover enters the picture and the whole atmosphere changes. It literally feels like a different movie. The rest of the actors step up their own game just acting alongside him.

At this point the film becomes somewhat of a "so opposite they just click" buddy movie, in which Jake Busey is the neanderthalish tough guy whose thoughts revolve around the female sex, and mostly around one specific member of that sex, Jennifer Tilly. Crispin Glover is the soft-spoken, introverted, biological genius who has never had sex or gotten drunk. The two actually make a very engaging pair on screen.

If the director would have cut about 30 minutes of the first 45 out, and then left out some of the Jennifer Tilly plot-line this movie would have had a chance at cult status. The plot line with Busey and Glover is intriguing and fun to watch. The audience never really knows what's going to happen next.

The DVD doesn't have any extras, but honestly I don't know what kind of extras there could be. Maybe another cut of the film that's shorter and more fun to watch?"
Interesting, to say the least

"Jake Busey and Crispin Glover are among a cast that all take part in this wierd little movie. Rick and Jules go on a road trip to palm springs after Rick decides to pack up and leave his old life behind. Oh, by the way, they are complete strangers. What an adventure, with a lot of interesting characters along the way, which makes this film just plain entertaining. Great cinematography to boot. Worth renting or even buying used."
