Storyline

Buddy Johnson recounts the story of his life to a lovely woman who comes into his bar: how he and his brother Al were groomed for show business (lounge singing) from an early age by their mother, how her Atlantic City bar was swindled from her, and how they managed to steal three hundred thousand dollars from a cheap hood. Is it fact? Is it fiction? Or does he just want to get into her pants? Written by Gary Dickerson <slug@mail.utexas.edu>

Not entirely bad. It lags at times, but McGinley is priceless
23 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

The whole movie is a come-on to Gina Gershon. The whole tale is a flashback he tells in order to get her into bed. It follows his and his's life in New Jersey or somewhere and the terrible jobs they have. All is well as long as the two brothers have their mother...but then she dies from stuffing too much sandwich in her mouth (YOU MUST CHEW!).

THe plot sucks, but Mcginley and his beautiful white choppers carry it along. He tries to smarm his way into the ladies and it never seems to work. He comes on to one of the most hideous bar rats ever in the first half hour, and he's so inept he can't even get her.

Look out for the midget from Twin Peaks as a singer channeling Elvis.

Remember Top Dollar from 'the crow'? He was Renee in 'basquiat' too. He's great in here as a real estate agent. Does anyone else think he might be a cokehead in this one? He sort of reminded me of Bernie from that movie about that weekend at Bernie's house...what was that called?

This is half decent if you're on drugs and bored. Don't seek it out, by any means.
