Best described as 'daffy', or maybe 'flaky'
22 November 2001 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

New Wave comedy barely released to theaters--mostly due to the fact New Wave comedies had not been in fashion since 1986. Rosanna Arquette is charming (as usual) playing eccentric New York waitress-and would-be escape artist!-who plots a major heist with help from British bartender David Bowie, who's in need of a green-card bride. Sassy script, excellent cast which includes Eszter Balint (very funny), Marlee Matlin and Andre Gregory, but it tends to have more energy than successful gags. A smoother direction and tighter editing might've helped, yet this is still rather fun, complimented by a wonderful background score by Thomas Newman. **1/2 from ****
