The material here is very weak: "Tender Mercies" covered the same territory with much more depth. The two leads are played well (though one is constantly thinking of how Kris Kristofferson would have handled the Bad role), but there are basic cinematic flaws - big ones. Bad's paramour says, for instance, that his drinking makes it like "living with a rattlesnake" - yet we never see even a flash of anger from him. He seems much more the depressive drunk than a bipolar one. Good rookie effort, lots of rookie mistakes. Two bones.
This movie is "laugh out loud" funny in so many places - the dialogue and lines are just hysterical! Great performances by all of the primary actors; surprisingly intense storyline and twists with the comedy thrown in. Highly, highly recommended to watch!
