Storyline

After another hard night at McCool's, bartender Randy runs into Jewel. The seductive lady seems to have evaded a rape pretty closely, and when the man comes back, she puts a bullet in his head. After all these events (and others), Randy takes Jewel home, and the two become a couple. Yet Jewel begins to develop into a very demanding girlfriend and drives Randy into committing crimes for her and her elaborate lifestyle. Randy's cousin Carl is driven crazy by Randy's incredibly sexy girl as well as the investigating officer, Detective Dehling. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

It's not easy to make a movie that's funny and smart at the same time. But this one is.
16 June 2002 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

Have you ever wondered what Michael Douglas would look like if he would have exactly the same kind of a hairdo as his dear old daddy Kirk? If the answer is yes watch "One night at McCool's" and the secret finally reveals. Luckily it's not the only reason to see this film. "One night at McCool's" is surprisingly effective, successful and entertaining mixture of tongue-in-a-cheek crime film and wild comedy. Liv Tyler is divine, Matt Dillon's performance amusing and Paul Reiser and John Goodman are just as fantastic as always when they're really giving their best. Michael Douglas' supporting role is also one of the funniest details of the film and let's not forget Andrew Dice Clay's fabulous appearance as Utah. If you love good, black crime comedies like Guy Ritchie's films "Lock, stock and two smoking barrels" and "Snatch" or if you just worship Liv Tyler this nicely written, well-made and cleverly acted little treat can certainly be worth of your time.
