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.

Will Patton is worth a watch
24 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Ok, This is not a great movie. It's not even a good movie. Quirky, slow, lackluster and uneven. However, there is a reason why Will Patton won best actor award at the Newport Film Festival for his portrayal of Sean. He did an incredible job as this slightly crazy character who is sane enough to know something is very wrong with him. It is worth seeing this movie just to take a gander at Patton's performance.
