Turning Green is, if nothing else, the world's loneliest teen sex comedy.
November 11, 2009

Nivola makes an astounding left turn from his nice husband role in Junebug and Hutton loses himself in the sort of part fit for a Walter Hill film.
November 13, 2009
A whimsical dirty joke of a movie set in a picturesque Irish village.

It's clear that Mr. Hutton enjoyed every minute of doing gruff, gross thugishness and boorish simplicity.
