Movie Reviews

This is the funniest indie film ever made!
Wayne C. | New York City, NY United States | 03/01/2001

"Filmed in the lower east side of new york, the story tackles complex emotions and the struggling life of a writer. It has a great cast with Michael Rappaport's best performance doing what he does best: acting like a beefy thug. I'm not sure why Matthew Harrison never made more movies."

"For some reason all of those stuck up critics didn't like the movie. I, however, loved it. Kevin Corrigan is perfect for his role, his acting is so low key that he makes some of the funniest lines even funnier. "You pay the rent" "no" "yeah, see that could be a problem" The main reason this movie is so great is all the minor characters we meet along the way and there is at least one line you will remember from every scene that will make you laugh whenever u think about it. The best scene in the movie is when Redmond is talking with some drunk guy about the stewardist (?)"
The blackest of the black comedies.

"Oh man, I hate to say anything good about a film with James Woods in the credits, my personal choice as Hollywood's most irritating and unlikable actor since Victor Mature. However, he's only got a bit part, thank god, and he plays a consumate loser(not much of a stretch) so I will gleefully throw this one a prop.

I don't know where all these lousy votes are coming from. I guess people tuned out early from all the existential angst our main character, Kevin Corrigan, is bleeding all over the place. Michael Rapaport is hysterical as an enthusiastic Irish gun toting beer distributor at war with more ethnic gun toting beer distributors. Basically the same role he played in True Romance but this time he's on crack. I think I counted about 700 beers in his refrigerator?

I also noticed that nobody in this movie can shoot worth a damn. Have you ever seen anybody empty an entire clip from a Desert Eagle at 3 feet and hit nothing but the sky? This movie is inventive, witty, and just downright hilarious. The final scene had me simultaneously rolling on the floor and searching for an airsick bag. Funny funny funny! A solid 4 beer salute."
You'll be pleasantly surprised

"Michael Rappaport's performance alone makes this a must see. The movie has a good, rapid pace, filled with numerous cast of characters (even the dog) that give the film a funny, irreverent essence. It trails off somewhat in the end, but overall, a very funny movie that doesn't take itself too seriously."
