Lively cast buoys low-budget comedy-thriller
25 September 2005 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Finally, a decent Linda Blair movie! Blair is very charming in this lightweight, nothing-budget comedy about a novice reporter out to get the scoop on the homeless in her community, disguising herself as an unfortunate and falling in league with loner Murray Langston (terrific) and needy, chatty Bob Zany (equally good). A fresh, funny movie that probably didn't need the sub-plot about a killer on the loose; however, the concluding events are tied up nicely and Blair and Langston turn out to be a wonderful on-screen match. Langston in particular proves to be a sharp, smart comedian. Available on VHS, and well worth a viewing. **1/2 from ****
