One day at the bar, office clerk Jeffrey Quint gets himself talked into a game of liar's dice by a lone stranger who introduces himself as Neil Jones and gets on Quint's nerves by confessing he kills people for business.

Potential wasted
16 January 2003 | by bartmanbluesSee all my reviews

My continued exploration for movie's with unusual concepts or storylines continued last night when I read about a movie whose plotline looked interesting, a man who chooses his victims at random. This reminded me of one of my favourite parts from 'The Jerk'.

However I found the movie only loosely interesting. I disliked the dream the main character has (that tells you something about the movie - I can't even remember the main character's name) right at the end, it even made me angry.

Potential wasted.
