Goofs

When Hank Dick (Darren McGavin) takes the hot dog from Joey Turks (Billy Zane), it has a bite taken off of one end, even though Joey has not yet taken a bite (and the fact that it has a bite off one end appears to be deliberately concealed by the wrapper and its handling, but becomes apparent as soon as Hank picks it up). Hank then takes a bite off the other end, so that it has a bite taken off of both ends. In the next shot, Hank is holding a complete hot dog that has had no bites taken off of it. In the next shot, Hank is holding a hot dog with a bite off of only one end and he is chewing that bite. These shots appear to have been placed out of sequence in the film. See more »

A wonderful surprise
22 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Although the first ten or fifteen minutes of this video may make you wish you'd rented something a little more fast paced, the rest of the film will leave you hungry for more. The quirky humor of this movie is a very unique treat, much in the vein of The Blues Brothers.

The movie is set in a surreal Los Angeles. Our hero, Joey Turks, is a poor excuse for a car thief, who wishes he was a lounge singer (his biggest hero is Frank Sinatra). This in a movie that came out BEFORE being retro-loungelizard was hip. Joey gets caught up in the murder of a drug dealer and some stolen drugs. He is used as a pawn by the police and the nefarious criminal kingpin, but all he wants is to get out of his life of crime and settle down with his new girl, Mona.

This is dark comedy at its finest.
