Storyline

Among the rich in New Orleans, it's the lush life for Lionel Exley, a golf hustler and heavy drinker. Released from an Arkansas jail, "Ex" returns to the Big Easy and starts a friendship with another heavy drinker, attorney Firman Carter. Often waking with no memory of how he got to bed, Ex becomes the object of affection of two wealthy sisters, Rachel and Ashley Van Dyke. Ex also keeps bumping into various local oddballs, pals of the eccentric Carter. When Carter goes missing and the police suspect Ex of foul play, it may be time for him to put down his glass and sort out reality from the haze. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

10 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie -- not your typical indie. Don't be fooled by the DVD artwork this is not a thriller! it's weird and funny with a romantic feel.

This is the real New Orleans; offbeat characters and way too much booze. JAred Haris is particularly good as the suicidal lawyer. Laurel Holloman and LAura Linney are fun as sisters on the prowl.

If you like your movies to take unexpected turns this is for you.

Also, how can you go wrong with Plastic Bertrand in the opening credits.

French punk rules!
