what a load of boring crap
A screenplay based on Tom Waits songs, it's got a lot of cliche in it when you write this down as prose. They're better lyrics. I assume the writer/director was basically throwing this together as a vehicle to gain experience with great actors. Even if the lead, Nick Chidlund doesn't quite hold up his end. Paul Sorvino and Debi Mazar are both great. The setting is an old-time run down Jersey bar. Our plot includes loves and dreams lost. The cameo by Steven Tyler is better than expected.
