Where have we seen this before.
19 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This nice little film about some nice & not so nice new Yorkers has been done many times before.In different guises we have 2 different people who are best friends & they get into many little adventures.

This film is not a bad film by any means & if you watch it, you might have a pleasant 90 minutes; The 2 leads who have been in many films together & in THE SOPRANOS work well together.Production values are on a par for this type of film.

Rating **1/2
