For his part, Dominick has been contributing to the family unit as a trash collector; in fact, it is his earnings that keeps food on the table.

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.
Not a bad bit of film. I rarely see Tom Hulce outside of Amadeus and his performance here is good..okay maybe a bit too much after school special.
