This movie was a wonderful find when I was looking for movies to buy at my local friendly used movie store. I looked at the back of the box and couldn't believe all the actors that had gathered together to make this movie. (John Favreau, Bud Cort, Sean Bean, Adam Beach, Kelsey Grammar, Joey Lauren Adams, Daryl Hannah, John Gries, and Rachel Leigh Cook. I found out from watching the extras on the DVD that this was Steve Anderson's first feature film. I thought he did a wonderful job making the movie on what had to be a shoestring budget.
The movie is a dark comedy that follows the comedic misadventures of Favreau. He is an out of work actor down to his last dime. In comes Cort offering him enough money to pay off all his debts for only delivering a suitcase to Baker, CA. No offence to the people of Baker, but I wouldn't have wanted to stay in Baker for the amount of time that it took to make the film. Baker isn't exactly a place to visit where you would expect to find a lot of entertainment. Favreau ends up spending a few days in Baker and ends up having a few bizarre episodes during his stay.
The opening scene with Cort that is worth watching all by itself. Kelsey Grammar is also very funny in the scenes that he has playing an FBI agent. If you like to find "diamonds in the rough", you may want to check out this movie. It was very entertaining and fun to watch. If your lucky like me, you may find it at your favorite used movie store for a very cheap price. :)
