and entertaining movie, though, in NO WAY do I consider this a comedy.
Excellent performances by Baldwin and Ward, but especially Jennifer Jason Leigh. If this had been recognized as a regular 'REAL' motion picture, she might have been nominated for an Oscar. Absolutely one of her best performances.
Kudos all around.
But this ain't no comedy.
And, on a side note, I believe Shirley Stoler was at one time an actress known as Shirley Kirkpatrick.
