After seeing last falls "Happy Accidents" many times, I doubted if I would ever see another movie that made me feel the same way. I just saw "Cletis Tout" yesterday, and plan on seeing it again many times. I can't get over how imaginative the plot line, acting, and script was for this movie. Ensemble casts are the way to go in the future. Tim Allen (who is cast against type here) is a movie loving hit man who takes both old movies, and his profession extremely seriously, but alas does have a heart, as we see at the end. Christian Slater, who has to be the most underrated actor in Hollywood gets to show the world he can indeed act, and with vigor indeed. Richard Dreyfus and Portia DeRossi (who I sadly have learned is gay...darn it!) are given less to do, but handle their parts well. The real gem here is the plot, and Tim Allen's handling of his part, WOW...I hope this guy takes more roles of this type..He shine's. To any and all readers of this review...GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!!
