C. Thomas Howell at his very best...
4 February 1999 | by briwillySee all my reviews

C. Thomas Howell both directs and stars in this little gem of a movie, that more than proves his worth (and potential) in both forums. Despite a rather dull run-of-the-mill storyline, the film is enhanced by some snappy dialogue, brought wonderfully to life courtesy of an inspired performance (both in front and behind the camera) by the charismatic C. Thomas himself. It is an absolute crime that this incredible actor isn't getting the recognition he so richly deserves. Watch this film and then go figure!
