Indiana, 1984. A bespectacled trombone player is wakened by his angry girlfriend, who's tied him up and leaves him in a bed in a field. He tries to crawl away, but a boy scout and cub scout hit him with foam swords. Two skivvy-clad rockers berate him and a third helps him discard his ropes. A pippi-longstocking-haired woman tells him there's a cabin up the road where he can clean up. In the cabin, an old salt tells him about Knuckleface Jones, a man of power. Inspired, the young man leaves for home. He is resolved to do everything he's capable of. Has he become Knuckleface Jones? Written by
Whether it's three guys in their tighty-whiteys rapping to a dude bound in twine or a girl saying "What up, dog?" to a lump of roadkill, there's something please everyone in Knuckleface Jones. It is strange and surreal and not altogether a completely comprehensible yarn... yet it never loses you. The first time I saw it, I nearly laughed myself sick. And every night after I would come home and watch it again. Forget Coyote Ugly... this is the movie that cemented my crush on Piper Perabo. See it... before it's too late!
