How do siblings deal with each other in their targets? This is the question tackled in this movie. Blue-collared Mickey drives a New York taxicab since the breakup with his promiscuous ex-fiancée Heather two years ago. His younger, white-collared brother, Francis, cannot let Mickey forget the tragedy of the "hairy ass": (Mickey's image of his apartment floor of the guy having sex with Heather after walking in on them). Finding relief in driving his cab, Mickey meets an art student named Hope whom he marries after knowing her for only 24 hours. Mickey also meets his old lover Heather, and learns more about life itself as taxi fares in the course of a summer. Francis, a young Wall Street corporate raider, unhappy in his marriage to Renee and led by his infidelity, continues his shots at Mickey throughout the film, only to find himself a plot device that lends humor and lessons about marriage and brotherhood when he meets and starts an dangerous affair with Heather, despite Mickey's ...

Don't Underestimate It
23 September 2002 | by (Culver City, Ca) – See all my reviews

I can't believe this movie has only a 6 rating. I thought it was entertaining as all hell and John Mahoney would be worth the whole movie, but doesn't need to be as all the other characters come through vibrantly. The relationship between the brothers is great, so textural, and Jennifer Aniston is priceless. But still in all, I go back to John Mahoney and the subplot between him and his wife (who we never actually see). That entire scenario was priceless and hysterical.

A great film that shows Ed Burns really is a talent as a writer and director. I give it a much higher rating then what it ranks at as a whole right now.
