Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Don't expect the comedy that the advertising promises: This is a deep, sad, slow film about a man reflecting on his meaningless life. That's not to say that it lacks funny moments, though; there are some, and Delmot Mulroney's cluelessly tacky half-wit doesn't take long to begin generating giggles simply by appearing on screen. Nicholson gives a fascinating performance as the anti-Jack, a man devoid of the passion for wickedness that is the actor's defining trait. This is Payne's deepest if not best work.
