Features fine performances by a cast of veteran actors but is marred by its unconvincing back story.

Underneath its cheeky amorality, there beats a heart.

Scrambling to find a place in the Coen brothers' shadow, Racz tries too hard to manufacture a sense of zany unpredictability, but each new twist only reveals Sheldon as the soulless opportunist that he is.

With a plot that is at once needlessly complicated and maddeningly careless, the movie veers unsteadily between farce and crime drama and never really engages the viewer.
