Movie Reviews

A rather strange, interesting movie
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 05/31/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is not a great film. It may not even be a very good one, but I have yet to see a performance by Keanu Reeves that I didn't find fascinating. In this oddball dark comedy, which does have some very funny scenes, he is terrific.He also has wonderful chemistry with Amy Madigan and a killer haircut !"

"This movie is quite good.It's a quirky piece (not always a mainstream man is our Mr Reeves) and Keanu shows promise for his comedic turns in later films.The storyline may not be an armchair thriller, but it works. Dysfunctional family, odd romance, kidnap (no ransom)spiked coffee.Keanu shows his youthful exuberance again as the misfit teen with a special gift for mechanical stuff and scheming.It's no blockbuster, but it conveys small town life well and that everyone's business IS everyone's business. The only escape is to get outta there.Love the hairdo Ke!"
The Prince Of Pennsylvania | Pittsburgh, PA | 01/16/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a nice story about a coming of age young man who isplayed by Keanu Reeves as Rupert. You follow Rupert through a part of his teen age life with friends a nd family, and all the happiness and problems life has to offer in a small Pennsylva nia town. I did like this movie and don't forget the twist in the movie plot!On a personal note this movie was filmed in and around the Pittsburgh,PA area. I even ha d the privilege to be one of the movie extra's in the coal mining scenes. Only four of the seven scenes I was in made the movie but it was great to meet and work with Keanu, Fred, Bonnie and the funniest person I know Amy Madigan."
Young wacky and crazy Keanu
myratings | Tampa, FL United States | 04/12/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"An offbeat film with offbeat characters. Keanu is fun but the older woman he has an affair with was definitely miscast. There is no believability in the chemical attraction there. Keanu kidnaps his Dad for money but his plan backfires. The whole family is offbeat and a little wacky. Watch only if you're a Keanu fan.
