Danny is fantastic
12 February 2001 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

One of the best performances I've ever seen is Danny, played by Stephen Schub. Permissible use policy of IMDb prohibits me from using any of the words that can describe the character of Danny. If you ever want to see an actor convincingly play the most detestable person you can ever imagine, see Schub play this role. Everyone else is good, too. An entertaining, enjoyable picture.
