A manipulating sister
2 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Part of Tim Allen's story is of course his time in prison as a young man. Knowing that I'm sure he used that time and his observed behavior of people inside and freshly on the outside for some good source material for Crazy On The Outside. It's a film about a man freshly released from committing a crime of video piracy for which he took the fall alone for his boss Ray Liotta. He was in for about 18 months.

Coming out Allen goes to live with his sister Sigourney Weaver and her less than thrilled husband J.K. Simmons and their family. He has a parole officer in Jeanne Tripplehorn and a longing for his old girlfriend Julie Bowen who has now hooked up with a rich auto dealer Kelsey Grammar.

As you can see Allen has quite the full life and a lot of life choices to make. I won't say more, but it does all work out. I will say though that Sigourney Weaver is quite the manipulator behind the scenes and moves both subtly and with the force of a sledgehammer at times.

The good ensemble cast gives director Allen a good show and star Allen good backup. More than fans of Tim Allen will appreciate crazy on the outside.
