They took a shot
25 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

A nice little movie, that isn't as mobbed up as the sales pitch. Really a good story about a small family in a changing world, where clinging to the past isn't such a good idea no matter what side of the law you fall on. Strong performances by both Ray Serra and Joe Viterelli, and decent production values. 7/10
