Don't drop everything to rush and see this.

"This movie features Crispin Glover (an undertaker) and Jason Lee (an unemployed used car salesman) as two smalltime crooks looking to make a big score to get out of a small town in texas, and get to big time las vegas. Sure enough, these two have all the man power, but non of the luck and brains to get it done...or are they being under estimated. There is a lot of dark humor, and has several funny moments, but just not a consistent flow. This could have been more, but wasn't. Good to watch once, but then return it for others to see."
If you like Crispin Glover and/or Jason Lee

"So you're a big fan of Crispin Glover, especially in his wilder and more eccentric roles. And you like Jason Lee.
But... this sounds like it could be a really dumb, banal comedy. And the reviews aren't so hot. So should you bother with it?
That's what I was mulling over before I finally bit the bullet and rented it. And I'm glad I did.
First and foremost, Glover and Lee are fantastic. They carry the movie. They're in top form here, and they create two wonderful bozo characters.
There is some very funny material, and some great, even classic, lines. I laughed out loud several times. And the story zips right along, doesn't get tedious or slow.
Having said that, it's a pretty conventional, routine storyline, despite many detours into inspired craziness. And some of it is kinda dumb or obvious.
This isn't risky or edgy material. But it is fun, funny viewing, with outstanding weirdo performances by Glover and Lee."
