A Good Idea May Not Be Enough
17 October 2004 | by Amy AdlerSee all my reviews

Mike and Andy work in a pizza parlor and drive a cab, respectively. However, they also write books together, books that never get accepted for publishing. Thinking their material is too boring, the duo are delighted when a man turns up dead in the taxi. One thing leads to another and soon the two are involved with the mob, thanks to an ex-girlfriend who crosses their paths along the way. Between shootouts in apartment buildings and other sundry activities, one thing is clear. Mike and Andy have lots of new material, but will they make it out alive?

This is just an average film about being in the wrong place, at the wrong time. There are occasional spots of humor but, overall, the film is flimsy not funny. The young stars are nice to look upon, giving the movie a boost. One could sum it up by saying the film has good ideas, executed in a mediocre way. Recommended for those who enjoy mildly diverting, offbeat movies.
