Rick and Reni came to California in search of a new lease on life. Unfortunately, all they found was each other... In a last ditch effort to save their struggling relationship, the duo twist their couples' counseling therapy into a plot that would see them turning back into their Texas low-life roots as petty criminals. As has been the case throughout the history of Rick and Reni's calamity plagued relationship, their haphazard scheme to hold up a dive bar goes horribly wrong. When a diverse cast of bar patrons gets caught up in their failed plot, Rick and Reni begin to not only wonder if they'll survive the day, but if they can survive one another.Written by
To be honest, I was not expecting much from this film. I can say with certainty, I was pleasantly surprised after seeing it.
The plot tends to jump all over the place but that is by design. The characters are all quite abnormal but it lends to the charm and style the film is meant to deliver to the viewer.
There is a lot going on despite (almost) the entire film being shot in a bar setting. Many nuances of the characters change almost in a flowing liquid way. To avoid spoilers, I will just say you don't know what to expect from the characters as they are introduced and things are not as they seem. This is a terrific quality of the plot and a testament to the film maker and the actors alike. There is some amazing "eye candy" for us guys out there, and solid acting by all as well as a great performance by "Adam Sandler films" reprising roles actor Blake Clark, who steals the show towards the end, IMO.
If you are into lighthearted dark comedies that don't take themselves too seriously, with a mix-match of Nutty characters and SubPlots abound, then you will definitely enjoy this film. Give it a go....you won't be disappointed!
