    ★★

    Fun little thriller. Not a brain in its head, but it looks great and moves at a nice place. Keaton, as always, rules.

    The greatest thing is all the armchair Letterboxd revolutionaries who angrily logged this film and informed us that this is "landlord propaganda."

    Comrades, I salute you for warning the 21st century about a 30 year old movie that was pretty much forgotten about by the culture a year after it was released. I was there in 1990,…

    Me after Cop Out: "What the hell? What the hell?"

    Me after Red State: "Huh, maybe he's rebounding. That was pretty solid."

    Me after Tusk: "All right, I'm done with Kevin Smith movies. What a waste of my time, his time, and God's time."

    Me when…

    ★★½

    Hadn't seen this since the mid 90s. Completely forgot this family film ends with Penelope Ann Miller marrying the four Piccolapupula brothers, meaning there's a good chance she's getting gangbanged three to four times a week. The soreness...

    Worth watching for the DVD commentary, in which the director and Fred Olen Ray get into a yelling match and say 'fuck you' to each other at least a dozen times. If you ever wanted to hear a director nearly have a nervous breakdown, pop this in.
