Movie Info

Louis "ZigZag" Singer (Sam Jones III) is an autistic teen from a broken home, living with his violent father, Dave (Wesley Snipes). After ZigZag steals $9,000 from his callous boss, Mr. Walters (Oliver Platt), in order to pay rent to his father, Dave coldly keeps the entire amount. Dean Singer (John Alberto Leguizamo), ZigZag's older sibling, knows about the theft and tries to find enough money to replace the amount before Mr. Walters realizes it's gone and comes after ZigZag.

  • Mr. Goyer's loose, unaccountable direction is technically sophisticated in the worst way.

  • The movie, despite its rough edges and a tendency to sag in certain places, is wry and engrossing.

    June 21, 2002 | Rating: 3/4
  • Goyer's screenplay and direction are thankfully understated, and he has drawn excellent performances from his cast.

  • The character of ZigZag is not sufficiently developed to support a film constructed around him.
