Barkley Michaelson is in a deep life rut. He's struggling to finish his PhD thesis when his father, the learned Eli Michaelson, wins the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. Barkley and his mother, Sarah, a renowned forensic psychiatrist, now have the ill-fortune of living with a man-eating monster whose philandering ways have gotten less and less discrete. As if Barkley's world is not bad enough, on the eve of his father receiving the Nobel, Barkley is kidnapped and the requested ransom is the $2,000,000 in Nobel prize money. Needless to say, Eli refuses to pay it and so starts a venomous tale of familial dysfunction, lust, betrayal and ultimately revenge.

  • The director, Randall Miller, appears to be trying to cross a bad Elmore Leonard thriller with a bad indie festival family angst comedy. ( Read More )

    Is there a way that I can offer a formal apology to Guy Ritchie for insinuating that Rocknrolla, was an ugly, stupid, violent and incoherent mess of a crime film when it actually comes across like ... ( Read More )
  • She doesnt talk like Alice Kramden on The Honeymooners, but you know what I mean. ( Read More )
  • Its all wildly implausible and occasionally fun, but it could be so much better if director Randall Miller had thrown in a little more character development and excised a half dozen crazy plot twists. ( Read More )
