The most enjoyable American film of the Seattle International Film Festival 1997
19 September 1998 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

William Macy (Fargo) is the head of a rent-a-cop agency who puts his two men (comedian Andy Fowle and Matt McGrath) on duty guarding the grave of a famous rock star on the eve of the 5th anniversary of his death. Colin Fitz plays like Clerks except the dialogue is far less crude but just as hilarious, and the acting is loads better. Fowle's line "smells wicked beefy," his theories on Buddy Holly dropping acid, and the die-hard Swedish Fitz fans are worth the price of admission alone. The best American film of SIFF.
