REVIEWS

Review by William C. Howsley (posted on 7-Jan-2008)

Why don't they make more of these. The characters are believable, Benning (now I see what Warren sees in her!), Cusack remains one of the best at playing the Everyday man, not a hero, not a villain, just a guy trying to get along. The story line grabs you and you stay with it to the end. See and enjoy.
