Without giving away anything, I thought the movie was a lot of fun and the story was nicely played out. Jason Lee was as wonderful as ever, playing his version of the frustrated smart guy. Crispin Glover plays a roll that is different, more normal than anything I have seen him play. He has his odd side in this film, as well.
The story follows the life(or Death) of a pretty girl(the beautiful Melissa Keller). Frank(Jason Lee)is trying to use her and Eddie(Crispin Glover) to get out of some problems with Spider's gang(led by Pruitt Taylor Vince). The tongue in cheek humor and the dark comedy make for an enjoyable watch.
I would recommend watching it. Especially if you like Jason Lee or Crispin Glover. The supporting cast is a great framework for the story and it's conclusion.
