On almost any level, this just doesn't work.

The story is within a story, and maybe within a third story. We have Josh (Andrew McCarthy) telling his son a bed-time story that we quickly realize is some version of a true story about himself and his partner Frank (Adam Trese). The story involves with a variety of plot devices, but not much interesting acting.

We never understand why Frank's making his decisions,they just happen. We're not sure about Josh's version(s) of the truth. Robert Vaughn is too restrained as Dad. Hayley Mills is a cameo. John Turturro is unsatisfying in that we think he may be crazy but we're certain he's not wise.

The cinematography is dull and lifeless, which is always a shame, because it is a choice.

Overall, the plot doesn't hold interest or hold together, so it's not "honest" at all, and not perfectly anything.
