A brilliantly wacky movie. I absolutely love it. Crispin plays a charmingly weird guy you can't help but love, and he's so funny too. The whole movie is full of zany comedy. One of my favourite movies of the 90s, I highly recommend it.
This definitely fits in with the zany comedy trend of the late 80s to early 90s, but it's not hard to see why it's unknown. It really is strange and odd through and through, and whereas someone like me embraced that aspect, the general public may dismiss it as stupid. Stupid is quite far from what this film is, I would say brilliant. The humor is just so odd and genius and it also says alot about human nature. It's really sad that this hasn't seen a DVD release yet, or at least if it has it's out of print. I demand a special edition with commentary!
Ed, a horrible but devoted salesman in a cult-like real estate sales "Organization," agrees to help shut-in Rubin bury his dead cat in hopes of getting him to attend a recruiting seminar. Howard Hessman and Crispin Glover are great in this sharply-written, sadly-overlooked comedy gem.
