Worse movie ever

"Okay, this is one of those very very low budget movies with a stupid story line that no one in their right mind would watch for entertainment or any other purposes. The quality of the picture sucks, and the actos are horrendous. The directing is the worst I have ever seen. And the storyline is extremely boring. If you are interested in wasting money on this movie, get it. If you are trying to build a mob movie collection, and you want to have every movie ever made, get it. But if you are a mob movie enthusiast, you are better off watching something else. No one with any taste would watch this movie!"
Subtle satire of a film genre

"Here we have a joyous occasion where *three* under-recognized actors have a chance to deliver a nuanced and very entertaining performance. John Vernon (of course recognized as the Dean in "Animal House") is a fine character actor and can find ways of expressing anger or delight even when the script and direction take a downbeat turn. Al Waxman's plays a character in confusion and he, too, can make filet mignon out of chuck. Margo Kidder is the loopy, leggy underachiever, exotic dancer and paramour of, euphemistically speaking, an undesireable who agrees to complete the evil task conjured up by Don Luciano's (Vernon character) ex-cohort in crime.
The frigid setting itself is somehow made funny by the offbeat, effective directing and writing. Viewers, is this now considered a "Cult Classic"?"
