Practically had me asleep
23 January 2014 | by ZooomaSee all my reviews

Okay, so maybe it's a little bit cliché to watch this on January 1 but I thought what the heck.

One motivating factor was that it's one of David Duchovny's first roles (he previously has one bit part in Working Girl.) He really was not yet a good actor at this point.

Maggie Wheeler (who played Janice in Friends) was alright but nothing here at all interested me whatsoever. Henry Jaglom's dialog driven excuse for a story is nothing more than vacuous and pretentious psychoanalytical drivel. I'm not sure Jaglom is for me because this bored the crap out of me.

---The Kat Pirate Screener. Arrgh!
