BARKIN & D'ANGELO STARRED IN THIS FILM!
28 January 2003 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

If it were not for great acting skillings by Ellen Barkin and Beverly D'Angelo, this film would never have been produced, they held up the leading male actor and the dog stole the show from everyone.

This had to be the worst film of 1992, no laughs for me at all.
