The other, other Jon Faverau Vince Vaughn flick
31 July 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a well written, well acted, and horribly photographed character play about a group of diner patrons who decide to split the winnings of a lottery ticket of a recently deceased man. Plot twists and double crosses abound in this rickety comedy.

Overall, this flick may be better appreciated as another chance to catch Jon Faverau and Vince Vaughn on screen together. Although they both have supporting roles (like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon in "School Ties"), the fact that independent cinema's finest creative duo both star in this one, makes it even more worth a look.
