Ugh
7 August 2001 | by (Quezon City, Philippines) – See all my reviews

This is the worst film I've seen. Still, Everett McGill seems to have done better in other films, most notably his appearances is Twin Peaks and The Straight Story. He is a good actor, even in this one, but his later works served him better.
