Audience Reviews for The Quickie

Though I love Jennifer Jason Leigh, this one really didn't do it for me. Not enough background on the characters, no development of the characters, and lots of talking heads with not much else going on. I'm guessing it was trying to be deep and philosophical; it wound up being a light-weight bore that didn't really play fair with the audience. If there is going to be an "ah!" moment, you should at least give us enough info to look back and say "how did I miss it?"

I rented it for Joel Heyman (his role as the bartender/butler was PIVOTAL to the story srsly....I <3 Joel), but I really did like the story anyway. Oleg was freakin' adorable.
