Excellent flick
27 January 2002 | by (Arkansas) – See all my reviews

I can't believe this movie doesn't have a higher rating (although 6.6 isn't that bad on IMDB). I'm not a Jason Priestley fant at all, but he is just fantastic in this movie. The story is totally strange, very low-budget it some ways, but it has some great acting by Priestley and Peter Riegert.

Although her part is small, Kimberly Williams is also impressive and the bit parts of Michael J. Fox, Talia Balsam (his movie wife, though very short lived, no pun intended), Janeane Garofalo, are also great.

Robert Loggia can't be a bad actor in anything, so we don't even have to bring him up.

This is my favorite "unknown" movie. It seems few people have seen it and I will buy it the second it comes out on DVD. I catch it on cable every chance I get. Yes, I did rate it a 10!
