Obviously this movie was shot on the cheap, however it IS an enjoyable one. William Fichtner is great in it but Kelly McGillis'... teeth are too visibly fake and gives me chills each time she smiles.
The movie has a few twists in the plot, but what I really liked is the reversal of roles between the two protagonists: in the beginning of the movie John C. Reilly is the 'wise guy' and Fichtner is the materialistic one, while at the end of the movie Fichtner's fear make him more careful of his choices while John C. Reilly becomes the "i want it all" guy that Fichtner used to be like.
I bought the DVD of this movie, but unfortunately was only shot in 4:3 format and it didn't have any extras. Also, the quality of the picture is not fantastic, it was obviously shot with cheaper machinery.
