The efforts of one unhappy young man to win the love of his father.

Ribisi, such a promising supporting actor in Saving Private Ryan as a medic and Friends as Phoebe's dopey brother, doesn't seem a big enough presence for a starring role yet.
December 10, 2001
Intriguing ... but the film is too busy being hip and preachy to notice the irony.

Younger has a firmer grasp on the convoluted workings of pop and business (sub) cultures than many of his contemporaries.
January 1, 2000
A curiously provocative look at the male psyche, ultimately turning inward to examine issues of ethics and morality -- all while still being as crass and vulgar as possible. Just like a guy.
