Not one for the faint hearted this is a stand alone film which refuses to fit into any category. It manages to switch constantly between humour, drama, pathos and sheer silliness. It is to the credit of the two main actors,Arye Gross and Tom Wood (alive again after being killed off in US Marshalls) that the film does not descend into complete banality. Woods endearing innocence contrasts well with Gross' futile attempts at bravado, and Joe Pantoliano is good as the seedy producer on the make. If you want something different, buy this one.
