    When you have Bruce Dern and Randy Quaid in a movie, you have expectations. Those two rarely disappoint, and that continues to be the case here.
  3. 40
    More predictable than its makers seem aware, its emotional hooks much too dull to pull us in.

    Saddled with an improbable plotline and an incoherent character, Garity demurs on the invitation to overact.
  5. Mr. Garity's performance doesn't quite redeem this sorely lacking production.
  6. 30
    A riot of artfully grungy hotel rooms, sleazy costumes and sordid behavior, Allan Mindel's directing debut gives off the smug air of hipsters at play, making it hard to care what happens to any of its lost souls and inept opportunists.
