The film is plagued by too many long, dead moments in which the story doesn't seem to be getting anywhere and attention wanders.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Another ethnic group -- Cajuns, this time -- suffers the patronizing ministrations of the American Independent Cinema.
It's billed as a romantic comedy, but Cajun humor, like crawfish gumbo, takes some getting used to.
This is an impressive debut film.
Belizaire has personality and quiet charm and a lot of affection, mixed in with the more predictable action elements.
| Original Score: 3/4
