Audience Reviews for Kicked in the Head

I liked this, but I remember so very little of it. I remember James Woods being a shitty uncle to Kevin Corrigan and always taking his money to "keep it in the family"

Funny enough to keep me interested.

Funny and bizarre NYC film produced by Scorcese and DeFina suffers slightly from an uninteresting main character but flourishes with an excellent supporting cast (James, Woods, Linda Fiorentino, Burt Young, Lily Taylor). Best gun play I've seen in years.
