Certainly not worth of the talents of Richard Thomas
15 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I didn't watch the entire movie, I did watch perhaps one half of it and it was pretty bad. However, I was totally fascinated by Richard Thomas. He plays such a strange offbeat, almost gay, out of control, over the top character. The hair,the clothes, the earring. Probably the best performance in the entire movie. I have seen Richard Thomas on stage and, of course, we all loved him as "John Boy" but this - this is so very out of character and unbelievable that I was compelled to watch and will probably pick up the last half tomorrow. And who were all the other actors - I hadn't heard of any of them nor have I ever seen them again.
