For a film staring so many talented people, "Chain of Fools" is a remarkably bad piece of work. Steve Zahn takes the lead as a barber that stumbles onto a set of rare Chinese coins, bringing with them the opportunity to make a truckload of money. Also appearing in the flick are Jeff Goldbloom, Salma Hayek, Elijah Wood, David Cross, Tom Wilkinson, Michael Rapaport, David Hyde Pierce, and Orlando Jones. Despite a decent cast by most standards, the movie misses the mark at just about every turn. Though there are a few good gags here and there, two or three mildly funny moments don't come anywhere near making this hour and a forty minute long film any more enjoyable. The script is sloppy, and mostly unfunny, the performances are ho-him dull to just plain bad, and everything in-between, and the thing looks like it was directed by a twelve year old. There are two directors listed on this one, and I'm not sure which to blame - most likely both. When even Steve Zahn sporting a mullet, and Salma Hayek in her underwear can't save your movie, you know that you've royally messed things up. "Chain of Fools" is a disappointment at every turn.
