Better than expected?
I really didn't have high expectations for this. The few reviews there are, most of them seem mixed, if barely decent. So I'm a little surprised by how entertaining I found the film to be. The acting is pretty solid across the board, the two leads do a good job. As one would expect though, the big stars steal the show. Sam Rockwell has been one of the finest actors around for a long time now, and this is no exception. Different from what he usually excels at, too. Marisa Tomei is even funner, being loud, often brassy, but with enough heart to really sell and become the heart of the film. The two supporting players steal the show, but not terribly so that you don't care about the leads.
