The sum is much, much less than the total of its parts.
My tolerance for shlocky direction was overwhelmed by some of the choices in this could-be-really-good time-waster.
When the "romantic" intervals were of a nature to take me out of the story and into "How-and-why-did-the-movie-maker-do-/that/?" mode, you got to figure something is missing in there; restraint and tastefulness, I think.
Brian Brown is a capable, empathetic actor - usually. I think he didn't like the project or the people, and it shows. I don't remember anything the other guy did. Can't even picture his face.
On the other hand, it doesn't have to be any good to be entertaining; some of the vignettes and twists are fun and even ingenious.
I watched this movie ($2.00 purchase at the vid rental place) against the advice of the screenwriter; I understand he was tempted to remove his name from the credits. Matter of pride, I bet.
