A good movie

I'm not a huge fan of David Mamet's work as a director but I was rather curious to check his sophomore directing effort, even though it seems to be a rather obscure flick. Basically, it is a minimalist gangster movie with some dry humor. It features two strong performances by Don Ameche and Joe Mantegna who perfectly deliver the typical Mamet's dialog. There were also William H. Macy and Felicity ... read more

“I'm not a huge fan of David Mamet's work as a director but I was rather curious to check his sophomore directing effort, even though it seems to be a rather obscure flick. Basically, it is a minimalist gangster movie with some dry humor. It features two strong performances by Don Ameche and Joe Mantegna who perfectly deliver the typical Mamet's dialog. There were also William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman with small parts. There is some kind of poetry to the proceedings and it defers with your typical gangster flick in the sense that there is no shooting, no chases, no violence whatsoever, at least, not on the screen. No, it is a character driven picture and I thought it made a very interesting viewing. Still, it remains an acquired taste since nothing much happpens during the whole thing a” read more

Chewer's 100 Funniest Films of the 80's (100 movies items)

"I remember seeing this movie by accident years ago when I was flipping thru channels and I'm really glad I caught it. If you ever wondered what a PG rated comedy from David Mamet would be like, here's your answer. Don Ameche and Joe Mantegna are teamed up in this movie about shoe-shiners, mobsters, and Lake Tahoe. It is a much more subtle movie compared to what I've listed prior, but that doesn't make it any less funny. Keep an eye out for the likes of Ricky Jay, William H. Macy, J.T. Walsh, Fel"

My Movie Diary 2011 (279 movies items)

"Apr.6 I remember Don Ameche because “Cocoon” is always shown during the run through of his movies. I remember Don Ameche now with this movie in mind. He was terrific in it and I see him the same way that I see Peter Sellers in “Being There.” It was the classiest of the class acts. An appreciation of a man. With Ameche are Joe Mantegna and others of David Mamet’s troupe. It is a Mafia-related comedy about friendships and last chances. "
