Movie Reviews

DVD: It's about frickin' time!
Jonathan S. Haas | Redmond, WA United States | 06/18/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I've eagerly awaited the release of Twenty Bucks on DVD for several years, and am overjoyed that it's finally here. With so much schlock that gets shoveled onto digitial discs these days it's amazing that such a quality flick took so long.

Twenty Bucks is a series of disjointed vignettes, united by their involvement of the same twenty dollar bill. We follow the double-sawbuck from its initial withdrawal from an automatic teller up through its eventual end. The hapless bill gets shoved inside a fish, stuffed in a stripper's G-string, and used to predict the lottery. Along the way, it touches the lives of several diverse characters, portrayed by an ensemble cast that clearly enjoyed their work. Especially noteworthy are Christopher Lloyd and Steve Buscemi (who is required by law to appear in all of these sorts of movies) as an experienced criminal and his somewhat bewildered apprentice. Some characters appear for a single scene, while others lose the bill and then return to us when the bill returns to them, to tie up their storylines.

It's an enjoyable ride, funny at times, poignant at others, and it deserves a spot in every movie lover's media rack."
Great cast, great concept

"I have always thought that any movie with William H. Macy must be a great film (it's a benchmark that has rarely caused me dismay); once again William proves me right. Although Brendan Frasier has a prominent role, this film is creative, interesting and has some genius plot turns. This was on the "Bravo" channel a few weeks ago and I sure wish I taped it...too bad independant films go out of stock so quickly. If you can rent it -- do!"
Hidden Treasure

"Coincidentally or not, it seems that I have been watching a lot of films lately that center around the main theme present in "Twenty Bucks". We are presented with a varied cast of characters and given insight into each of their very different lives, all the while being shown how they, and we for that matter, are all connected.
What seperates "Twenty Bucks" from other films with the same theme and makes it so good is its ability to vary moods quickly and seamlessly. The film does an excellent job of mirroring life by presenting such a wide spectrum of differing events and emotions. Like life, the film is whimsical and light hearted one moment, and tragic and melancholy the next, but never do these transitions seem forced.
Our actions carry repurcussions that affect other lives in ways we can never realize, even if that action is something as seemingly insignificant as a twenty dollar bill moving from one hand to the next. The deep question being asked of us of course is, "Is it all random or is there some underlying destiny that moves us along towards our fates?" Thankfully, "Twenty Bucks" does not attempt to answer that question. Instead, it merely presents us with life and all its triumphs and failures, sadness and joy, and disillusionment and enlightenment, and lets us decide the answer based on our own point of view...do you see these things as random events or is fate involved?"
Watch this movie!

"Amazing things about this movie: 1. everybody's in it but nobody's heard of it; 2. anyone will like it, including Great Aunt Matilda; 3. high watchabiltiy, that is, you can stand to watch it more than once in your life; 4. it's really, really good."
