    Has an air of detachment and sadness, enhanced by the movie's being set a full quarter century ago. show more

    Shocking is the fact that three highly regarded actors -- Kim Basinger, Mickey Rourke and Billy Bob Thornton -- chose to star in this dreadful film. show more

    "The Informers" is a timely masterpiece about how the family unit is at a decline in this country. Those who didn't like it can go back to their fantasy worlds of reality TV and the Easter Bunny.

    One of the two worst movies I have ever seen! pathetic, unredeemable, twisted, a-moral and, yes, sick! I left after half an hour. My husband tried and said that while he waited for a way to connect all of the above, it never happened. Do not waste your time.
