Movie Info

2 Jacks is a comical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's short story Two Hussars, comparing the generational change from father to son within the same business. The fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle, with romance and glamor, comes alive in 2 Jacks; a now-and-then look at the renowned way of living. Legendary film director Jack Hussar (Danny Huston), notorious gambler and womanizer, returns to the LA scene to raise money for his next feature film. Back in LA, Jack walks himself into an eventful night. Doing what he does best, Jack seduces the stunning Diana (Sienna Miller), attends some wild industry parties, and narrowly escapes a brush with the law, all before playing a high-stakes poker game at dawn. As years pass, Jack Hussar Jr. (Jack Huston) later arrives in Hollywood to follow his father's career path for his directorial debut. Soon after arriving, Diana (now played by Jacqueline Bisset) notices her daughter falling for her former lover's son. Within this film we see the struggle of a son trying to step out of his father's Hollywood shadow.(c) Official Site

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (9)

Bernard Rose's fourth ultra-low-budget Tolstoy adaptation suffers from a slack narrative and abysmal dialogue.

Based very loosely on an early short story by Leo Tolstoy, "Two Jacks" has a much less interesting second act ...

Unfortunately, these inconsistencies cause more confusion than the magic Rose is presumably going for.

Playing these self-infatuated flimflammers, Danny and Jack Huston obviously know the drill. It's in their blood.

Mostly, it makes you feel like the only sober person at a party you can't leave.

Oct 17, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Rose's apparent intent is to show how little of Hollywood's Golden Age magic is left today. In that, at least, he succeeds .
