Movie Info

Allan Mindel's Milwaukee, Minnesota is about con men hoping to take advantage of a fishing champion. Albert (Troy Garity) is the best ice-fisherman in Wisconsin. He is not the sharpest tack in the box, making him susceptible to the less than ethical advances of nefarious Jerry (Randy Quaid), Stan (Hank Harris), and Tuey (Alison Folland), who all want in on his tournament winnings. Albert's life becomes even more difficult after his loving mother (Debra Monk) dies in an unexpected traffic incident. Milwaukee, Minnesota was screened at the 2003 Slamdance Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for Milwaukee, Minnesota

Garity doesn't break any new Rainman ground here, but Allan Mindel's film has a nice sense of place, and Richard Murphy's script has lots of low-key surprises.

Memorable enough to warrant another shot at director. This film ends in a way that proves Mindel doesn't rely on cliches to make a statement.

Everyone seems to be playing someone else in Allan Mindel's full-of-potential, slight-of-script Milwaukee, Minnesota.

Top Critic

Most of its cast makes strong impressions, but the plot and motivation don't quite jell, resulting in a minor item that shows its star Troy Garity to good advantage.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

More predictable than its makers seem aware, its emotional hooks much too dull to pull us in.

A strange, compelling film, with Mr. Garity as a likeable, winning centerpiece.

Audience Reviews for Milwaukee, Minnesota

A decent odd ball film, but I didn't like the yellow tinge the whole film had.
