Goofs

When Bart is sitting in his car outside the diner and shoots Joey's friend through the window, Mona pushes the gun up and away and it goes off after it's pointed upward toward the sky. So, the shot couldn't have gone where it was initially aimed into the diner. See more »

Excellent!
31 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a true sleeper. It's on late-night cable a lot, so there must be some recognition of its merits, considering it is such an old film. In a nutshell, this is pure LA noir, with crazy characters, crazy circumstances, and a lot of weirdness goin' on. The cast is superb, with Billy Zane striking just the right note, Darren McGavin turning in a hilarious performance, and the ageless and beautiful Jennifer Beals playing a subdued but nuanced part. (Kudos also to Harry Shearer, for a great cameo.) This film is truly a keeper, full of little moments that are funnier on reflection. (E.g., Bart starts to get amorous, so Joey all of a sudden starts concentrating on his dinner...hilarious.) Great entertainment.
