Jjaks and Freddie run off together, and Sam finds where they have been hiding and calls the cops. Meanwhile someone calls to blackmail Sam and Jjaks. In the end will it all work out?Written by
Freddie (Cameron Diaz) tells Jjaks a story about meeting Ann-Margret in Las Vegas when she was a child, showing Jjaks a necklace Ann-Margret had given her. Three years later, in Any Given Sunday (1999), Ann-Margret played Christina Pagniacci's (Diaz's) mother. See more »
In the first fight in the movie between Sam and Jjaks, Sam pulls a gun and aims it at Jjaks then Jjaks knocks it out of his hand. The gun Sam is holding when he aims it is a semi-automatic. But when Jjaks knocks it out of his hand the next thing seen is the gun flying and bouncing off the back of a chair and landing on the floor. The gun that comes to rest on the floor is a revolver.

This film suffers from being a hybrid between the Coen brothers and Quentin Tarantino in part. It's not violent or ironic enough to be a Joel Coen creation and not obscenity-laden or gory enough to be a Tarantino product. There is humor, however, in the bumbling of Vinny D'Onofrio's character and in Reeve's typically understated role. You get the idea the real "bad guy" in the film is the neglectful, dope-smoking mother who allows the older brother to brutalize and bully the younger. It's topped off with more goofiness with Aykroyd's Krazy Kop and Delroy Lindo's Gangsta role (I particularly liked the red hair gimmick). I missed this one when it came out and rented the video because I found the name, Feeling Minnesota, remindful of the Coen Brother's Raising Arizona. I found it very watchable and rather liked the ridiculous situations very dysfunctional people get themselves into. The only glitch seemed to be Cameron Diaz who at times seemed unsure what her character was all about. Still, there is much in this film to recommend it. I would ignore the more negative reviews found here: I've no idea what these people were expecting or wanting. Check this movie out for yourself and you decide.
