    A comedy so devoid of wit and point that not mentioning the other actors trapped in this rathole would be an act of charity. show more

    But the jury is still out on Romano's future in movies. Hackman blows him off the screen. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    David Mamet handled such small-town whimsy better in 2000's "State and Main." Hackman could play his role in his sleep, but Romano IS asleep. Result: Welcome to Mildport, and that's being kind. show more
