What's going on with the low ratings of this amazing film? A film filled with quirky scenes and outstanding character bits, this movie has plenty of stuff to keep any film buff intrigued and happy. The two leads do a great job of playing off one another in their madcap escape from inevitable danger, while meeting up with a very odd assortment of characters, such as Jeremy Piven as an off-the-wall drug dealer whose monologue is one of the more dynamic in recent film history; or John McGinley's off-beat role; or Selma Blair's warm and caring nature; or the strange alligator boy; or Seatle's grunge scene; or lots of clever lines of dialog handled quite well by Jared and Jake. This film deserves a round of second opinions, because it's a hell of a lot better than the reviews suggest.
