Quotes

Robert Boyd: That's not the point, Adam. I mean, the room is covered in blow; Moore looks like he went at it with a fuckin' mountain lion; I mean, the room looks like the Manson family stayed here a month. This is a major thin-ice situation we got here.

21 April 1999 | by jaws!See all my reviews

Very Bad Things is maybe the best,and most entertaining movie I saw in 1998! It's sometimes funny,and some scenes are very funny. It never really lets up. Top notch entertainment. It's maybe the best black comedy movie I ever seen. I give this movie ***1/2 out of ****
