While Dominick and Eugene certainly is not a terrible movie, there's very little that will stay with you once the end credits start to roll.

Audience Reviews for Dominick and Eugene

the unlikely pairing of tom hulce and ray liotta is the thing here, hulce predictably in the walkaway gimme role of "someone mentally challenged" and ray liotta as a nice guy(gasp!). a feel good movie that feels good.

It has it's moments, here and there, but overall Dominick and Eugene plays like a bad after-school special. Heavy on the sentimentality and lite on the realism. The intentions seem sincere but the result is often sappy and sometimes ridiculous.
