Storyline

Henry, an uptight businessman who sometimes acts with questionable ethics, nevertheless rejects Ron, a scam artist who wants a partner. Ron won't let up and finds a lever to blackmail Henry, whose daughter Gina has killed a pedestrian in a hit-and-run car accident. To protect Gina, Henry disposes of Ron, but a murderous sociopath witnesses this crime. Henry and this stranger bond in an odd way, telling stories about their childhoods. Henry makes a deal with the stranger, helping to get rid of the body of one of the stranger's victims. Will this act seal a bargain between the two men and get Henry off the hook, or will the stranger threaten Henry and Gina? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

laughed my ass off!
22 December 2011 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Bizarre twisted psycho thriller. Layered with jokes and hip pop culture references. Happy ending. Two thumbs up. Ignore all those negative reviews by girly men and other wimps. They can all go to hell. If you like to laugh and love action pics you'll enjoy this. Otherwise perhaps not.

If you liked Denis Hopper in Blue Velvet you'll like this movie. If you liked Madsen in Reservoir Dogs, you'll like this too. Even though I'm still very angry at that little jerk for waking me up in the middle of the night when he was looking for Johnboy.

Any more questions?

I give this film a 9/10. It would be a 10, but it wasn't in Panavision.
