I liked it
26 December 2010 | by bgormleySee all my reviews

I liked it so much I actually bought the video and still watch it occasionally. The wonderful cameos make the whole thing worthwhile. Dr John is a riot and I especially love the scene with Robert Blossoms and Leon Redbone where they lock the main character up in jail. Robert Blossoms "you mean he interrupted the flow of money???!!" Then they sing. Leon Redbone is always amazing. I never heard of Blossoms but he was great. Hilarious, but great. And Tom Waits can't help but be interesting. That amazing woman singer, too. Holy cow. I could listen to her over and over. I watch this movie while skipping forward to the good parts. There's a lot of dead weight, but ignore that.
