A watchable film.
Not a great film.
I gotta admit…John Travolta is a pretty fucking good actor.
Sure, it’s a standard type (the mobster), but he does it really well here.
The story here is pretty convoluted.
Having a job proves you’re employable.
Makes it easier to get another job.
Rene Russo looks pretty good here.
She is, by the way, now 65.
Kinda like Henry Miller.
Delroy Lindo is good here.
A nice glimpse of Hollywood…with Gene Hackman driving his Mercedes convertible.
Tough guys communicating to tough guys.
I don’t know why, but I can’t really get into Danny DeVito.
He’s not horrible.
He just doesn’t do anything for me.
In anything he’s been in.
Dennis Farina is really good in this.
Bette Midler looks good in this.
Too bad she’s a moron.
Funny that James Gandolfini plays a redneck in a mobster movie.
Really hard to believe!
Again, worth watching.
But not by much.
