Storyline

Goofy romance about a young man who desires a lingering romance, but shies away every time a woman gets close. His best friend is an eccentric who keeps lizards in his pocket to scare people away. The two share an aimless existence until the first man meets the second's neighbor, an inner-city school teacher whose car keeps breaking down which she keeps taking to the OK Garage, which is run by a crook who specializes in ripping off his customers.

Why?!?
28 July 2001 | by (Amsterdam, Holland) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies you wonder why they made it. It probably looked great on paper, but it's so incomprehensible that you start to doubt your own perception. These actors should know better. The story is about a woman (Lili Taylor) who's car has broken down, she brings it to the OK Garage and after a while finds out that she is being ripped of by the owner (a couple of times). She gets so mad about this that she asks her weird, reptile-loving neighbor (Will Paton) to help her get even with the owner. Together with a friend of his (John Turturro) they (sort of) do this. In between we see the garage-owner Yannick have some trouble with a scam he is trying to pull of involving stolen cars. Sounds like fun? Well, it isn't! They sell this movie as a comedy, but there is hardly anything to laugh about, this is Indy-filmmaking at it's worst. Didn't the director/writer realize that there is supposed to be some point in all this? What is this movie about? Who cares...... Avoid this movie, even if you like these actors: it's a waste of time.
