A Nice Little Story
17 June 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I got to see this movie on Showtime early one Sunday morning. For a Howie Mandell movie, I was expecting a few jokes and some physical comedy. What I got instead was a serious film dealing with race and tolerance. I was lost with the hip hop music because the early days of rap and hip hop (street style) music was more of a "flavor of the month" than a real genre of art.

Overall, a nice little film but this is far from anything great or worth watching over and over and over again. The acting is as good as its dialogue....still, the overall message was worth getting a the movie was worth watching once. I consider this one of Howie's serious films to remind the critics that he's Jewish and a good actor. For that reason, if it be true, I think the movie was a success.
