Never heard fo James LeGros, but he was good. I want to see more stuff he has done. I watched it to see John Cusack. I thought this movie was very good. Made you think. Great ending. Good Music. John Cusack is only in one scene.

One of my personal favorities.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This movie has everything: salient social commentary, great acting and character development, a captivating and touching story line, timely humor, cameos (Billy Bob Thornton, John Cusack, Kim Wayans, Steve Buschemi, Ethan Hawke, and others), and most importantly it deals with the human soul and the complexities of navigating your way through the hardships of the modern world in which we live. I stumbled across this flick while watching the IFC back in 97'. Since then, I've seen this film at least 10 times, and each time its has helped me to clear my head and put things in perspective. Everyone I've ever shared this brilliant picture with has been truly touched by it. If your in search of meaning in the world, yourself, or truth, this movie is for you. "What's so funny bout Peace, Love, and Understanding""
Clever, sarcastic portrayal of how life can downward spiral

"An offbeat movie with great one-liners that shows how when life starts to suck, it can spiral in on itself and slowly get worse, but nothing is completely unredemable and that things change. I started out doubting it but ended up really enjoying it."

"This movie is absurd -- few would debate that. But wicked funny and inspiring in its holistic approach. It's hard to describe in a way, like what Louis Armstrong said about Jazz: "If you have to ask, you'll never know."
James LeGros plays John, whose life can't get any worse. He decides he's getting tired of it and pulls a final coup à la "Falling Down" (only with hilarious results and endearingly surprising fulfillment). His (mis)adventures are a slow-burn treat and the cameos (John Cusack/Ethan Hawkwe) are sublime."
