Audience Reviews for Layin' Low

For a little known indie film this was a surprisingly entertaining movie. Piven is cast against type playing a laid back loser in his late 20/early 30's that is unemployed and still living with his parents. Edie Falco (Angie) also does a wonderful job as the woman that is the catalyst for change for Jerry (Piven). Worth a watch.
