Gawd!
7 June 1999 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Two extremely obnoxious kids, plus a boorish father who, if he had truly been a well-developed character, would have beaten the living daylights out of his annoying son, but who instead, since this is a dumb Neil Jordan flic, only whimpers, and a woman of certain age who is no doubt a reject in her attempt to get the role of Jocasta in the Oedipus trilogy---slap these together and boil them lukewarmly, voila: TV soappopper a la Ireland.
