Brian Cox stars as Jacques, the curmudgeonly owner of a gritty New York dive bar that serves as home to a motley assortment of professional drinkers. Jacques is determinedly drinking and smoking himself to death when he meets Lucas (Dano), a homeless young man who has already given up on life. Determined to keep his legacy alive, Jacques deems Lucas is a fitting heir and takes him under his wing, schooling him in the male-centric laws of his alcoholic clubhouse: no new customers, no fraternizing with customers and, absolutely no women. Lucas is a quick study, but their friendship is put to the test when the distraught and beautiful April (Isild Le Besco) shows up at the bar seeking shelter, and Lucas insists they help her out.

Eric H (ca) wrote: This was a great movie about survival, and I'd recommend it to anyone that wants to watch a heart-wrenching film for a good cry. I'd even recommend it to anyone that thinks that immigration is some life of luxury, in order to see an alternative point of view.

Daniel Y (nl) wrote: Besides having good performances, once again, from Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, Men in Black II is a weak movie that lacks the freshness or hardly anything else which made the first film such an enjoyable movie.
Jordan K (mx) wrote: Grosse Pointe Blank is a film completely lost in time, probably because it's an extremely outdated Cusack movie, but if it was still '97, I'd really think of this as a decent flick. Not great, but decent enough to keep you interested at all times.Martin Blank is a professional assassin who goes back to his small town for his 10 year high school reunion, attempting to hide his career lifestyle when trying to rekindle with a lost love. The rest is predictable, as Blank from here and there disposes of other assassins and everything you've thought of really happens.Good movie. It's incredibly cliched but other than that, not a whole lot wrong with it. Blank is an interesting fellow, he knows he's insane but doesn't accept it around his lover and eventually turns a new leaf. Humor's ok, there's a consistent 1980s vibe in it, it's exciting and fun. It's not perfect, but slick and fun.

Paul D (de) wrote: I tend to keep watching this movie year after year. It was one of my favorites from my childhood and I still love it to this day. The critics hated it. Heck, even audiences generally didn't love it...but it was certainly everything I wanted it to be. Probably would be somewhere on my top 30 of all time list.
Jack O (ca) wrote: Nothing in common, one of the better films. I remember listening to the soundtrack for it, Richard Marx, Carly Simon and Christopher Cross and you know what, I really like the movie. It sure reminds of the old years. I should really watch it again. Check it out and see for yourself.
Alex P (mx) wrote: The graphic sexuality in this film, both hetero and homosexual, may put many people off, but this film is Paul Verhoeven, who brought such travesties as Showgirls and Starship Troopers to the screen,'s greatest film. The story follows three shiftless young men who wish to escape their small-town surroundings through motocross. Shocking and explicit, but powerful.
