Movie Info

Aldolpho (Steve Buscemi) is an aspiring writer-director who can't even claim to be scraping by. No one will touch his flagrantly anti-commercial epic-length script, his acting gigs offer little compensation and his crumbling New York City apartment is haunted by debt collectors. Worse, the literal girl-next-door, Angelica (Jennifer Beals), is oblivious to his affections. In a desperate attempt to get his screenplay funded, he meets Joe (Seymour Cassel), a crook willing to play dirty for cash.

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (1)

  • A charming pipsqueak of a movie, a playful film of ragged and shaggy appeal.

    February 7, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Rockwell's wonderfully unassuming movie throws a big hug around youthful ambition, b/w filmstock, and the glowing screen charisma of Cassel. An unheralded gem.

  • A droll, self-conscious fable with an unexpected heart of gold ...

    August 30, 2004 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • [Actor] Cassel seems to be a variation on the noble/foolish hero played by Ben Gazzara in Cassavetes's The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, but you certainly don't have to know this source to respond to Cassel's enormous funds of charm and charisma.

  • Because of the generally poor quality of character development, I just didn't care about how things resolved themselves. A strong ending might have redeemed something from this mess, but it was not to be.

    January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In the Soup's charm is based in its humor, in its odd bits of business that happen in the margins.

  • There isn't enough one could say about the casting in this film -- it's simply perfect. The story is elevated by the chemistry and sense of improvisation between Buscemi and Cassel.

    February 7, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Though not great, it's easily Rockwell's best work, a playful film with darkly comic twists, played out nicely by Steve Buscemi and Seymour Cassel, who's over-the-top but the film allows that.
