Movie Info

A good ol' boy from the middle-class suburbs of Atlanta becomes indebted to the mob in actor-turned-director/screenwriter Ray McKinnon's quirky crime comedy. Randy (McKinnon) is about as American as baseball and apple pie. Randy's wife (Lisa Blount) is a clinically depressed baton teacher who also suffers from a painful case of carpal tunnel syndrome, and his identical twin brother, Cecil (also McKinnon), is openly homosexual. When Randy runs into financial trouble, he seeks a quick fix by borrowing money from some local mobsters. Just when it begins to appear as if Randy has gotten in way over his head, the unanticipated appearance of mysterious mobster named Tino Armani (Walton Goggins) leads to a decidedly bizarre turn of events.

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

  • Filmmaker-actor Ray McKinnon voices his Southern droll in this amusing, feel-good comedy.

  • Not a very good movie, on the whole, but there are laugh-out-loud moments and there's promise in the unusual world it depicts.

    Nov 1, 2007 | Rating: 2/5
  • A Southern-fried deadpan farce that suggests a mid-'60s CBS sitcom as reimagined by Hal Hartley.

  • It's a film brimming with individual scenes featuring nice visual touches about the South and comforting down-home dialogue spiced with a healthy twinge of sarcasm. Too bad the movie never completely gels.

  • Arch in a way that his previous feature was honest, it's a clumsy attempt to lay an overcoat of forced cornpone whimsy on a drab storyline involving mobsters.

  • It's just that the comedy and the drama never quite crystalize into anything remotely affecting, with the end result feeling more like some extended Southern in-joke than an honest movie.
