Vincent Gallo and Christina Ricci star in quite simply one of the best debut films by a director ever made. Vincent Gallo brings us a black comedy about a small time misfit ex con billy's (Gallo) attempt to kidnap a girl (Ricci) to masquerade as his wife to convince his parents that his life has turned out to be a success. Throughout the day we discover numerous things about Billy's former life that give the viewer both sympathetic and understading about why he is the way he is. The standout scene is the dinner scene with Ben Gazara and Angelica Houston as Billy's parents. A must see for all Indie enthusiasts
i don't know why, but i ADORE this film. i hate loving and love to hate billy brown, vincent gallo's ex-con, his football-obsessed mother, his lecherous dad, and his tapdancing, kidnaped girlfriend. so weird.
