    This was a thoroughly mediocre film (was it even a "film"? it all looked very digital-born and the titles were hideously pixelated) and Mr. Buscemi's eye for comedy does not add to this show. It's tragic, plays out that way, and may be insulting to anyone who considers themselves ordinary. If the characters don't inspire tears of despair they are certainly yawn-worthy and This was a thoroughly mediocre film (was it even a "film"? it all looked very digital-born and the titles were hideously pixelated) and Mr. Buscemi's eye for comedy does not add to this show.

This production should have spent more time in editing, hopefully removing the rueful "details of everyday life." Expand

    Affleck is dead on as the hapless Jim but the film is nearly stolen from him by Mark Boone Jr. who plays Jim's drug induced Uncle Evil. Kevin Corrigan is also great as Jim's brother Tim.

    Under Buscemi's overall smart direction, the acting is terrific.

    There's a slightness to the mildly eccentric material here that leaves the whole enterprise in danger of fluttering away.
