Review by anonymous (posted on 12-Feb-2007)

The sum of the characters casting are each abnormally weird throughout the film. The fluent amount to jumpy characters bores the audience with a lack of transition between each role. Dwayne Hoover, played by Bruce Willis, is a man who appears to have it all, but in reality, he is going insane. Hoover greets each day with a pistol in his mouth, in which he reluctantly considers pulling the trigger. Every time he is about to commit suicide, he is interrupted by the memory of his already dead wife, or another individual. He then puts the gun away and begins his inordinate day of insane characters and activities. Hoover’s office he occupies, states in a logo on the wall, “You don’t have to be crazy to work here,” whereas each character, in reality, is crazy! Nick Nolte appears to act too hard in his role as Harry, the disturbed right hand man of Hoover. He enjoys dressing in woman’s clothes, but can never take pleasure in this because of his extreme paranoia of Hoover discovering his secret. In the end of the movie, Hoover and Kilgore Trout, another fairly odd individual who believes mirrors to be “leaks” meet and as a consequence, Hoover discovers life’s importance. I could continue endlessly of the continuous amount of odd characters that bring few laughs or emotions to the viewing audience.
