Bad, but not that bad
10 April 1999 | by (Rotterdam, the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Having seen the extraordinarily bad rating, I felt the need to help boost it up. The fact is that Louis & Frank, although certainly not as good as earlier Rockwell films, is by no means a disgrace.

The film starts off very promising indeed, with some great conflicts between Louis and Frank. It was funny and good energy. However, the film does drag and many of the characters are annoying: Tony Curtis is embarrassing and annoying, and Steve Buscemi probably only did the film as a favour to Rockwell, who provided Buscemi with fantastic roles in Somebody to Love and In The Soup, but here the character is just dumb.

Don't rush out and see this movie, but if it is on tv it is worth watching.
