Overview

The director of such off-beat independent films as In the Soup, director Alexandre Rockwell once again teams with that film's star to deliver this Los Angeles-based comedy concerning superstition and intersecting lives. Things aren't looking so good for television clown Banana's (Steve Buscemi) career, and the fact that his estranged wife, Suzi (Jennifer Beals), has just been arrested for assaulting his girlfriend, Lily (Karyn Parsons), just serves to compound Banana's despair. Teaming with sidekick Binky (Peter Dinklage) to enlist the aid of bail-bondsman Mo (David Proval), Banana and Binky discover that Mo is currently negotiating the release of hip-hop mogul Lenny's (Daryl Mitchell) wife, Sandra (Rose Rollins). The hapless group soon teams to help Mo by finding a suitable kidney donor for the bail-bondsman's ailing son, and though they quickly happen across a drunk (Peter Stormare) who fits the bill, the trouble comes in keeping the prospect in the hospital. Doing their best to help Mo's son under increasingly chaotic circumstances, personal tensions flare as each character desperately tries to simultaneously battle their own inner demons.

    what is this?

    this is one bad movie. screenplay has so many holes. who knows what the director was thinking. with bad cinematographer that tried to act all arty. this is independent cinema at it's worst. i really hate overly negative reviews that are filled with nothing but spite but this movie was way too pretentious. and I barely made it too the end. a bunch of good actors are in this film, but that can't save it.

    Give it a chance

    This movie sounds like a gimmick, what with priests, a clown, a dwarf, and a sick kid and all. But, it is actually very well directed and the actors do a great job with what turns out to be a touching, feel good story. Give this one a chance on those nights at the video store when you think you've seen everything.
