Pretentious drivel - for hardcore Sam Rockwell fans only

As others have stated, the only reason to see this is to catch one of Sam Rockwell's first major roles. This would be the first of many likable petty criminals Rockwell would go on to play. However, you'd have to be a hard core fan of his to sit through this movie.

I would not be surprised to learn that this dialog was initially intended for the stage. The problem is that despite trying so hard to be witty and original, it's actually all very old fashioned. It's very much 1960's absurd theater dialog of the kind Albee was writing, though with less, much less, wit.

Allan Garfield does what he can, but even giving his all, it still does not work. Judy Reyes performance, while not without some charm, is basically very amateurish. So, all that remains of interest is Sam Rockwell. In this early role, his strangely compelling screen persona is very much evident. So sharp is his talent, it overcomes this pretentious drivel.
