Overview

This offbeat police thriller with heavy doses of humor was written by John Patrick Shanley, the former playwright who wrote Cher's hit romantic comedy Moonstruck. Kevin Kline stars as Nick Starkey, a brilliant former New York City police detective who has been exiled to the fire department because of his unorthodox ways. He's called back to service by his police commissioner brother Frank Harvey Keitel in the hopes that he can find a bizarre serial killer who's been murdering one woman a month. Nick's condition to agreeing to help is that he gets to cook dinner for Frank and his snooty wife Christine Susan Sarandon, a former girlfriend of his. Ultimately, Nick uses his Zen-like intuition and some high-tech computer hardware with prominent product placement plugs to find the killer, pausing to have an affair with the mayor's beautiful daughter Bernadette Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. In the improbable conclusion, Nick figures out the exact day the killer will strike and the exact apartment! January Man is too tongue-in-cheek to be taken seriously as a thriller. In addition to Keitel and Sarandon the stellar supporting cast includes Rod Steiger as the mayor and Danny Aiello as a tough police captain who rails against Nick's "beatnik" ways.

    January Man: Starting the year badly

    One of the worst films I have ever seen, January Man really has no focus, no plot progression and no character`development. The film starts by signalling-up relations between key characters - notably the brothers Kline and Keitel and Keitel's wife. However, the telltale signs of a naff film are already there to see as the brothers' first encounter is subsumed in cliche and predictability. The film carries on in this style, until the characters become completely absurd. I am not really sure what Susan Sarandon's role was within the film or what type of character she was playing. No sooner have we met her then we come across Alan Rickman, who surely must have considered an injunction to prevent the film ever been shown in Britain. Finally, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio can be forgiven as she was probably young and still trying to make a name for herself. Shame she is used for a gratuitous tit-shot. Sadly, the film is to predictable and really tries to be too many things and ends up being nothing.

    Great Witty Flick!

    I stumbled on this movie because I so enjoy Kevin Kline. It is wonderful fun and with enough edge to keep you engrossed. Kevin Kline is, as always, irreverent and sharp but don't miss Alan Rickman's off-beat, low-key role. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Susan Sarandon are perfect counterpoints to Kline and each other. It's fun...it's a lot of fun!
