worst movie I've seen in years
3 February 2007 | by ErnieMuraokaSee all my reviews

I too, went out and rented this movie because of Jason Alexander and was woefully disappointed. The movie is a character driven piece with great actors---among Esai Morales and Ron Perlman, however, it's just boring. The back notes---"Love and Laughter Reign in Queens" of the DVD must be about another movie because even after a couple of beers watching this picture, I never laughed once. I also like the way they shot some of the movie in southern California to make it seem like they're in New York, but last time I checked, there weren't many palm trees in Queens. Unfortunately I am a stickler to watching a movie, no matter how awful it is, to the end. I couldn't wait for the thing to end. Alexander was 1,000 times funnier on Senfeild and if you are a Jason Alexander fan, do not watch this movie, it will ruin his following.
