Very Strong Performances From Jones & Gaffigan
24 September 2019 | by smithdean-22092See all my reviews

A very dark thriller that keeps you watching. I just finished watching "American Dreamer" via VOD. What a great movie. Jim Gaffigan was great at being such a dark character and Robbie Jones was menacing and intelligent in this. The whole movie takes one dark turn after another. The director did a great job at keeping the story moving non stop. If you love a good dark thriller of a movie, watch this ASAP. And if you want to see a slightly insane Jim Gaffigan, you need to watch this movie! I highly suggest it. I'm mad I didn't know about this movie before today? I seen it was finished in 2018 but just now being released late 2019??? People are really missing out on a great flick!
