  • He definitely needs more experience, but writer/director Jake Goldberger displays an appealingly skewed sense of humor in his noir debut. show more

  • Goldberger mistakes deadness for deadpan and mere oddness for that touch of genius that allows a first-rate filmmaker to get laughs out of the contrast between gruesome acts and mundane social concerns. show more

    Don McKay is a curious hybrid of warring tones that occasionally make peace. When they do, it's quite magical. show more

    The most ridiculous, worst acted waste of time and money I've seen in a REALLY long time. Thomas Haden Church, is sitcom horrible and i've never seen Elisabeth Shue worse. i would have walked out, but I kept thinking SOMETHING WOULD HAPPEN. It did, more bad acting, writing and directing. Melissa Leo is the only one who grabbed onto a shred of reality. even with the electrifyingly bad script. I should have known when there was only one other person in the theatre and we both shifted and grunted thru the whole thing. run don't walk A-WAY.
