A miserable thing to do to someone
12 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just absolutely godawful- so so completely garbage. Lets start at the top, its called A Night in The Life of Jimmy Reardon, but it takes place over the course of several months, maybe the director just liked the sound of the title rather than its accuracy. Next, its a movie about a miserable "ladies-man" who deceives friends, lovers and family members for small cowardly reasons. The filmmaker celebrates these meaningless deceptions, the filmmaker celebrates his heartless soulless Don Juan, its so insane and confusing that it left this reviewer asking this question "hey what the hell is this crap?" I mean who the hell is this movie for? What sort of awful hate filled rapist wants to watch this? Jimmy Reardon is a character devoid of kindness and compassion, less man and more entirely a creature, a creature that does not interact with fellow humans than so much stalk them in a predatory manner. DESTROY THIS MOVIE!
