Jimmy (Steve Guttenberg) and Kate (Cynthia Watros) are in the middle of a break-up and completely oblivious to the fact that they're being robbed, by a gay guy. Kate splits, leaving Jimmy alone in the house with the burglar (Lombardo Boyar). They confront one another, start talking, and suddenly Jimmy's wondering if he's really, you know, "sensitive".
I picked up this film at my local Blockbuster following a bitter breakup. I was in such a depressed mood I didn't think anything could help me out. I decided to take a chance since I'm a big fan of the novel.
The gamble was worth it. Within two minutes, I was smiling and having a wonderful time. The movie helped me put things into perspective. Things could be more dire than my situation; I could be Jimmy (or worse, Eddie).
Lombardo Boyar should have gotten an Academy Award for his role as Eddie the would-be cat burglar. He made this a lot of fun to watch. Steve Guttenberg fared well at both directing and playing the half-crazed Jimmy Zoole.
I highly recommend it for anyone who's a fan of the novel or has just had a horrendous day. I must warn you, however, that you have to have a sort of strange sense of humor to appreciate the movie.
