Critic Reviews for The Boost
Absolutely hilarious; Woods and Young all but claw the screen -- and each other
Underrated look at the horrors of drug addiction. James Woods, as always, is terrific.
Audience Reviews for The Boost
Pretty flawed, but a damn good ride. Crashing and burning and cocaine-ing and lude-ing and yelling and striking deals/wives and losing deals and shit.
Okay, so James Woods seems coked up even before he gets on drugs, and every possible druggy cliche that you can imagine happens to our drugged up couple, lost in California and in over their heads and it all just comes off like a Reagan-era anti-drug screed rather than a plausible turn of events. Might be worth a rental to laugh at though, I found it pretty amusing.
It shouldn't have been called The Boost, It should've been called The Bottom because thats where Cocaine takes you.If a school or anybody want's to show a anti drug movie then they should show this 1
