Summary: Oliver Platt rules!
At this point I think I want to see everything Oliver Platt's ever done. I was initially going to pass on this film, as Sandra Bullock movies are frequently dumb, but when I realized Platt was in it, well, I had to see it. Glad I did! Bullock's role in the movie is truly peripherial, which is great. Liam Neeson plays an undercover DEA agent who's completely stressed out and trying to work a deal while dealing with incredible bowel problems brought on by the stress. Platt plays a mafioso-wannabe that's trying to pull off a deal to prove to his father-in-law that he's worthy of better "family business". Everyone's getting screwed though, as the backstabbing is nonstop. So, the movie was a LOT better than I expected it to be! Unfortunately the script/plot leaves a ton of holes at the end, which is rather disturbing. You'd think for an 85-minute film they could have had 5 more minutes to wrap the loose ends, somehow.
