I stumbled on this overlooked "Fargo-esque" black comedy, and it really wasn't that bad. Woody Harrelson is always perfect as the scumbag character, and that's the case here. Holly Hunter's character has Tourette's syndrome, which gives the writers open season for outrageous gutter-mouthed outbursts, and forgive me those who have it, she did crack me up. I still can't help thinking about Robin Williams' unfortunate choice to exit the way he did, and wonder about his mindset whenever I see him...
