**1/2 (out of four)
Little independent film with Steve Antin as a young man named Monkey. He is at the center of a circus called the Zetterland family. They are mostly wacko.
The strong cast, consisiting of Katherine Helmond, Patricia Arquette, Rupert Everett, Bo Hopkins, and Martha Plimpton, do their best with the so-so material.
It keeps going with oddities and non sequiturs piling up until it digresses into a half-baked plot about terrorism, the theft of Monkey's script and some street crossfire. Notions of plot only intrude on the mass of wonderful characterizations that best typify this movie.
Not that I was able to finish it, but I would recommend never starting it.
Very engaging, with a great cast. All of the characters, with the exception of Monkey(Antin) who is adorably jaded and broody, are brilliantly eccentric and memorable.
A really good Independent film about a man with a life full of twists and turns. Steve Antin stars as Monkey Zetterland, Patricia Arquette, and the rest of the cast make this film enjoyable to watch.
