The wonderful irony is that Dreyfuss is able to blackmail all his former revolutionary friends by threatening to tell everyone all the good things they were a part of. No one needs to know that they might actually be decent, upstanding people.

Audience Reviews for The Big Fix


Dreyfuss as a 60's revolutionary holdover. Look for small bit by F.Murray Abraham as a Abbie Hoffman type.
