This movie is predictable from scene one, though that wouldn't be a problem if it had a good script, good performances and solid direction. But it doesn't.

Do you amuse me, Joe Pesci? No, you do not.

A shaggy dog drama about the education of one upwardly bound college student.

A politically correct, vastly sentimental and ultimately insincere saga of the friendship between a kind homeless man, played by Joe Pesci, and a guilt-ridden Harvard student, played byBrendan Frazer.

One of the few films I've ever walked out on. Pesci and Fraser serve up unsympathetic and grating characters.

Aside from Moira Kelly I couldn't care. I want to say I paid $1.50 and felt kind of ripped off.
