Disappointed...
26 July 2002 | by (Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark) – See all my reviews



The cast looked promising, the storyline seemed to hold some laughs, and I was in the mood for some off-beat Diane Keaton gangster comedy.

Well, there are a few laughs to be had through-out the movie, but most of the time I just thought 'when is something interesting going to happen?' and 'when does Diane stop crying/shouting/babbling hysterically?'. I'm used to watching Diane Keaton playing this type of character, but in this case she really overdid it (may be the Director's fault, who knows). An outright terrible performance is made by Anthony DeSando playing the son/sidekick/whatever of Sorvino's character. The part in itself is exceptionally stupid (very cliché), but DeSando manages to make the character appear so stupid, that it isn't even funny (which I believe it was intended to be).

Bob Balaban (as Keaton's brother), Burt Young (as one of the persons she's asked to kill) and sometimes also Maury Chaykin makes the last half the movie somewhat tolerable, after 40 minutes of Keaton freaking out all the time.

The movie isn't exactly terrible, but it is the worst Diane Keaton-flick I've seen for some time.
