Ragged but interesting
10 May 2002 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Unusual film was wrongly advertised as a wacky comedy; it is actually a surprisingly sensitive and light-on-its-feet drama about friendship. Mentally backward man (James Belushi, in his best performance) hits the road with an escaped female mental patient named Eddie (Whoopi Goldberg) who has a brain tumor and keeps thinking she sees Jesus going by. Sort of a tragic love story between two unfortunate people that life threw away. Both stars are just fine, but the sloppy editing shows signs of an indecisive captain of the ship, and the blue-collar rock-n-roll on the soundtrack is irritating. Panned by just about everybody, I found a great deal of depth here, some scattershot laughs, and I was really moved by Belushi's matter-of-fact performance (no showing off) and his touching scene at the funeral. *** from ****
