Genius, esp. in light of "Million Dollar Baby"
31 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Am I the only person in America who remembers this film? Did Ron shoot his brother in the face or in the chest? and....wasn't the slo-mo sequence of the brothers motorcycle accident the worst accident/tragedy sequence in history? Sweet Mother of all things holy- If I was a neck down parapalegic, and couldn't even move except with the sip-n-suck, I'd hope one of my loved ones put me out of my misery too That said, I thought Ron Howard was pretty Opie-like in this film, especially considering the effect of blowing a big hole in his brothers chest would have on the open casket and his ability to plead non-guilty ("Honest, Officer Fife, I was in the sweet shop having a malt with Eddie Haskell").
