For "wing nuts" only.
26 June 2003 | by George ParkerSee all my reviews

The only good thing one can say about this budget conscious, garish, cockamamie kludge is O'Toole. Telling of competing game show hosts, one old (O'Toole) and one young (Gillen), who have more in common than meets the eye, this dark comedy has little to offer beyond the Shakespearean performance of O'Toole who trudges doggedly through the script with inevitable futility. For wing nuts only. (C)
