Critic Reviews for In the Soup
A charming pipsqueak of a movie, a playful film of ragged and shaggy appeal.
Rockwell's wonderfully unassuming movie throws a big hug around youthful ambition, b/w filmstock, and the glowing screen charisma of Cassel. An unheralded gem.
[Actor] Cassel seems to be a variation on the noble/foolish hero played by Ben Gazzara in Cassavetes's The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, but you certainly don't have to know this source to respond to Cassel's enormous funds of charm and charisma.
Because of the generally poor quality of character development, I just didn't care about how things resolved themselves. A strong ending might have redeemed something from this mess, but it was not to be.
There isn't enough one could say about the casting in this film -- it's simply perfect. The story is elevated by the chemistry and sense of improvisation between Buscemi and Cassel.
Audience Reviews for In the Soup
entertaining and funny movie about a person who wrote a script and his ventures of trying to get it made.
If quirky fun is for you, so is this movie. From about :10 in, one becomes nearly anxious to see how it ends. Bonus: Jim Jarmusch. Seen: B&W version. Ownable.
There was nothing amusing or even mildly interesting about this movie. This has to be one of Steve Buscemi's lifeless performances. Seymour Cassel's character is eccentric, but he is eccentric for the sake of being eccentric. This is a completely forgettable movie.
