This is the story of Billy, played by the writer/director Vincent Gallo, who having just been released from prison, decides he needs a woman to accompany him to visit his parents. He scrambles around the bleak streets of Buffalo looking for somewhere to take a leak, eventually finding a dance class building where, after avoiding a homosexual guy in the men's room, he meets Layla (competently played by Christina Ricci) and abducts her to take to his parents (Ben Gazzera and Anjelica Huston), who turn out to be a tad eccentric and avid Buffalo Bills fans. Billy is also on a mission to kill Scott Wood, a former kicker for the Bills football team, who missed a game-winning field goal (remember Superbowl XXV, only it was Scott Norwood, nice delicate change there) which cost Billy his freedom in a wager with a shady betting shark (brief cameo from Mickey Rourke). Billy then takes us to his local haunts, in the bowling alley where we meet the seldom seen nowadays Jan Michael Vincent in a small role, and also to a diner where he comes across an old college friend, Rosanna Arquette, who reveals some secrets about Billy. This is a strange, offbeat and funny film, the central theme being the redemption of Billy and the relationship between him and Layla, which at first is spiteful, then develops into respect and love. It is an entertaining independent film.
