Not Too Good, 22 February 2000
Author: Big O-7 from Binghamton, NY

This film is okay. The big drawback is that this is NOT a true story. The acting is fine, though Mike McGlone is a little hard to swallow (but there have certainly been worse performances that have gotten a lot more attention). It comes off as a film that reaches to be a Sidney Lumet production, but falls way short.
