Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Rips right into its twisted plot and seldom slows. The movie is only 15 minutes old before one character says, 'This has gone too far.'

Brian Mckay

A fairly average and predictable comedy-mystery, it is raised a notch by the likes of Walken, Denis Leary, and the supporting cast

Christopher Walken is tied to a chair most of the movie, and he's the center of attention. If that's not a selling point, you and I will never agree on anything.

The superfluous characters are almost as plentiful as the flashbacks. If someone can explain to me what Laura San Giacomo's purpose was in this film, I'll give them a dollar.

Some unpredictable twists, intense thematic moments, and strong performances, the movie does not provide quite enough to warrant a recommendation.

David Luty
Film Journal International

A convoluted, senseless mess.
