Win...Place...Show me the head..............
First there was "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia", then "8 Heads in a Duffel Bag", and now "On the Nose". The big difference is the head in this movie lives in a jar, and can predict the outcome of horse races. Talk about a unique idea, and this farce is marginally successful, thanks to a pretty fine class of actors, including Dan Akroyd, Robbie Coltrane, and Brenda Blethyn. This is a small film, and if you go in with realistic expectations for a slight comedy, you will not be disappointed. Some of the antics could have been trimmed, as 104 minutes seems overlong for such slight material, but I did enjoy "On the Nose". - MERK
