Critic Reviews for Palookaville
Audience Reviews for Palookaville
A well-done little comedy about bumbling small-time thieves. Though it holds together well, everything is more or less variations on a well trodden theme.
Understated comedy about inept criminals featuring lesser-known actors. (Not nearly as bad as it sounds.)
Clumsy, dim-witted comedy that manages to mess up on almost every level. It becomes wearisome within the first ten minutes at most, and it only gets worse from there. This movie forces the audience to participate in the bumblings of three despicable characters for 90 minutes. The dialogue scenes are all bizarrely directed, forcing actors to perform actions that are as unconvincing as they are stupid. This isn't funny material; it's downright desperate. Vincent Gallo (the reason I bought it) is great as always, and the same can be said for Frances McDormand. That's about all that can be said for this misfire.
