An odd sort of film, but excellent for Stephen Rea fans. Here Stephen does not play his usual sort of sad, world-weary Irish gentleman. Instead, he plays a sweet but lying chauvinist. Plenty of odd sort of scenes you won't find him in anywhere else- one in particular he whips off his shirt and parades about a room before fighting gladiator style. Other pluses: the 80's tight pants and his gay button. Love that mouth scrunching he does when he's angry.
