Bernard Rose's fourth ultra-low-budget Tolstoy adaptation suffers from a slack narrative and abysmal dialogue.

Based very loosely on an early short story by Leo Tolstoy, "Two Jacks" has a much less interesting second act ...

Unfortunately, these inconsistencies cause more confusion than the magic Rose is presumably going for.

Playing these self-infatuated flimflammers, Danny and Jack Huston obviously know the drill. It's in their blood.

Mostly, it makes you feel like the only sober person at a party you can't leave.

Rose's apparent intent is to show how little of Hollywood's Golden Age magic is left today. In that, at least, he succeeds .

It's a reasonably entertaining portrait of disreputable Tinseltown types that should at least provide some knowing chuckles for insiders.

False gravity weighs down 2 Jacks, a father-son drama less interested in exploring familial relations than in tut-tutting the millennials.
