A complete misfire
24 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of DePalma's least-known films and deservedly so. An unfocused, unfunny, would-be satire starring a smug, dimensionless Tommy Smothers who quickly becomes tiresome, and like Will Ferrell in Stranger Than Fiction(2006) you may just want to slap him. The film shows DePalma merely marking time and wasting ours. Visually the film is monotonous and DePalma's earlier films Greetings(68) and Hi,Mom!(70)are more inventive, anarchic and free wheeling. Even appearances by Katherine Ross and Orson Welles do nothing to liven things up. You may not get to know your rabbit, but you may get to know your tolerance for films that aren't nearly as clever as they think they are. DePalma has done better:Sisters(73),Carrie(76),Casualties of War(89).
