|Lions Gate Films | Release Date: April 28, 2000||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
It is an intense study of the human condition, and man's relationship with God, aka the Big Kahuna.
Doesn't have the dramatic heft to warrant all its angst and anguish.
It's no meal, but it'll tide you over.
Spacey, whose precise command of enunciation and diction, along with his wicked, reptilian charm, are strong enough to carry the show.
A flawed labor of love that's definitely worth a look.
The Big Kahuna -- for its superb performances -- wants to be too much, but is about too little, working better as a series of fine monologues than as a cohesive story, the film's makers trapped somewhere between potential and reality, deal unclosed.
Peter Facinelli, as Bob, isn't up to verbal sparring with Kevin Spacey just yet.
Forgive me for being underwhelmed.
A ponderous stage adaptation that expends only the mildest effort to overcome its staginess.
