Better than expected!
Louis Gossett Jr. is always watchable. I wasn't expecting this film to be as good and as entertaining as it turned out. I'm not saying it was brilliant, but I didn't feel like I wasted an afternoon. Mostly, I felt Gossett needs to be in better films that are up to his talents. But it was a good effort, none the less. I haven't watched it in a while, but I'm willing to see it again. I did feel the so-called "comedy" was a bit over-arched. And I like humor breaking up some dramatic moments. Done well, (like the way David Lynch does it) is nothing short of genius. But in this film it just seemed a bit silly and made to take up time. And not as character driven as it really should be.
