Nick: This is really gonna hurt. They say you see your entire life flash before your eyes right before you die. But this is a fast bullet, so all I really have time to remember are the last few days. I'll start three days ago with my first art class, just a mere hour from my closet-sized apartment in Paramus, New Jersey.

Potential?
1 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

Despite my better self, I actually enjoyed this. An 8 might be slightly high score, but not by much.

Were there bad elements? Oh yes. Very bad. It was very derivative of a dozen better-known films (Get Shorty). It had a very heavy early-90s feel. The music was very bad.

But overall it had a good energy. Quirky. Charming. And very good structure. We clicked in with the lead right away and launched a good story right away. Then there were a parade of colorful and entertaining characters. Within a ton of very familiar elements, arose an originality. (And some good camera work, too.)

This would not have survived a theatrical release but is generally better than what is on the DVD market.

This is for you but only if you like quirky. It wasn't laugh-out-loud. But endearing? Yes.
