    I loved this movie when I saw it in 1999 or 2000. I'm watching it again now on Netflix. I'm pretty sure it kinda sucks. Disappointed....and what does that say about Kamie circa 1999?

    I tried watching it for the first time about two weeks ago, I couldn't get past the bar scene. I really wanted to see it, but it was fucking awful.

    The Yakavetta Family?? :facepalm:

    Ok so it's not just me. The concept is great but the execution just didn't work.

    The documentary about the dickhead kid who wrote it is much better. Overnight I think is the name of the movie. Guy had the world by the balls for 6 months.

    I'm gonna try to watch the whole thing (it's on Netflix Instant)...but it immediately looked like a dumb guy who thought he was pretty clever. And the Weinsteins bought onto it for some reason.

    The doc was fantastic - the dickhead is Troy Duffy. He had the world by the balls and fucked it up. Hubris.

    Troy Duffy fucked the Weinsteins which is why he is blackballed. Billy Connolly was fantastic, though. Even Willem Defoe pissed me off in this movie, and I love him.

    life was just so much better in 1999 that it wasn't as obvious when things sucked. movies have to be a lot better nowadays to get people's minds off how crappy life is. except for movies about how crappy real life is. those work even better now. hey everyone, let's have a fun night out at the movies. we'll see that new 911 picture. should be jolly fun.

    The movie sucked but the documentary on Troy Duffy is great. He's a huge asshole.

    If you thought the first one sucked, you should see the sequel. I couldn't get past a warehouse scene where they get into it with a Chinese or Japanese gang that was terribly miscast with Hawaiians and/or Samoans.

    Definitely fits the criteria for "six pack cinema."

    I'd always caught chunks of it (back in the day it was one of those movies everyone was obsessed with), but I never sat down to watch it start to finish until a few months ago.

    It's just okay. It has few inventive scenes and some funny dialogue, but overall it feels too long and thinks it's more clever than it actually is.

    I agree Overnight is a much better film. You will hate Troy Duffy with a passion by the end of it. And you should.
