Terrific ensemble cast seems underwhelmed at their material
THIS cast could have taken the film into a 'HIGHER realm' of movie magic than the 'Great Abraham' ever managed. BUT it never gets going... Disappointing Mark Rydell film that fails to 'take off'....KGrammar&RLiotta, terrific actors both, seem in suspended animation. Can't put my finger on the problem, but the spark is not quite there.
Happy to hire this DVD based on the talent displayed on the front cover. Some good scenes especially where DDaVito is concerned.
This did not deliver the goods
Would not recommend. This gets a "6", and feel generous with that.
