After incurring a huge debt with a crime lord, con man Eddie Sullivan (Mark Feuerstein) needs some quick cash.

  • This lame comedy about a big doofus who enters the fight game manages to take every cliche in the book and render them even more cliched. show more

  • Director Michael W. Watkins, whose decades of TV credits go back to "Quantum Leap," manages one clever visual gag - a bus wreck, observed from the far side of a cornfield. We hear a crunch, see a telephone pole wobble and a little puff of smoke. Then Watkins blows the moment with a fiery overkill. show more

  • A 2010 movie that could have been made in 1940. show more
