Improbable script, nobody acts this way in real life. The scene where the Sheriff takes the self confessed killer into the office and then puts the only other suspect on the speaker phone is just ridiculous. The only reason I picked this film to watch is the marvelous and wonderful J.T. Walsh. A truley authentic actor whose time on this Earth was cut way too short. The only other reason to watch is the plotline between Jeff Fahey and the kid "Mickey" who had no other person to count on. The ending, while good and fuzzy, still didn't make the emotional payoff for watching this film in it's entirety. I give it a 4 out of 10. Three of those goes to J.T.
