A witless script wrings few laughs from its retread conceits, but it too often doesn't even try.
Moves uneasily between comedy, drama and thriller. Oldman is the film's downpoint.
If you like your movies described as "quirky" and "kinda weird", here's a not-awful dark comedy that at the very least, offers one enjoyably bizarre cast.
If it sounds stupid, that's because it is.
Nobody's Baby, or, Something Unfunny Happened On The Way To The Editing Room as the goofy antics of the first half unwisely bump headlong into more serious elements and uneven sentimentality during the second. Very reminiscent of Raising Arizona storywise with its ex-con lead character coming into possession of a baby he wants to raise while living in a trailer in Nevada. I guess they changed states to avoid copyright law.
Skeet Ulrich is a likable numbskull as Billy, and a completely unrecognizable Gary Oldman steals the show as his equally dim partner-in-crime Buford. He's listed as co-executive producer, and that's probably the only way he could secure the role of a densely whiskered, Southwestern-accented redneck with pervasive hemorrhoids, and he nails it. Even the way he wears his clip-on sunglasses is funny! Radha Mitchell provides the dramatic side to the story as Shauna Louise who is physically abused by her live-in boyfriend Peter Greene, the same sleazeball who ran the pawn shop in Pulp Fiction.
Life among this small community of trailer trash shows flashes of potential, but ultimately cannot decide what it wants to be which hurts on the scorecard. Definitely a must-see for Gary Oldman devotees, and appropriate to say that given the Nevada setting, for others it may be a roll of the dice.
A bizarre and dark comedy, that is not like i expecting.
