Editorial Reviews

In his debut effort, director/writer Steven Baigleman put together an interesting premise and collected a talented cast to execute it. Unfortunately, he never sets the tone, so we are caught between a wildly black comedy and an emotionally brutal drama. A

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale of transformation. December 21, 2003
This is a remarkable movie, not only in it's unusual and very funny way of making the points that it does, but in that it is written from a point of view that is almost never seen from the all-too-privileged aristocracy to which most of the movie industry's writers and directors belong. This movie is almost painfully insightful into the mental state of hopelessness which traps people into sordid lives, particularly those who are raised in that sort of life and have never experienced anything else. The characters Jjaks and Freddie not only manage to envision a way out, together they fight their way to some measure of freedom in the end. They do so using the only tools and behaviors they know, which means that it is all very sordid indeed, but their goals are so much more noble than anything that could be expected from that environment, that it is very close to a miracle that they exist at all. It should be noted that those characters who have chosen to embrace the sordid life instead of resist it are relatively thriving at the beginning of the film (Sam, Ben Costikyan, etc.) Jjaks, who has been to prison before, may once have been like them, but if so, something must have happened to change him (before the story in the movie?). The movie shows Jjaks' transformation, opening his capacity for compassion and love for another, and finally gaining the courage to hope. Keanu Reeves really nails his character admirably, playing someone who feels more than is really safe to feel in his environment, and has developed a deeply engrained habit of hiding his feelings. Look carefully for the use of color to symbolize the different stages in his transformation, and the meaning of the dog too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nickel & Diming April 13, 2003
I had a hard time grasping how a group of people is stealing (trading/swapping/owning) huge amounts of money from each other, yet individually looked, talked, acted, dressed, and lived like folks far below the poverty level.
Freddie (Cameron Diaz) is being forced to marry Sam Clayton (Vincent d'Onofrio) by Red (Delroy Lindo). For big, bad Red, it is a tidy transaction. Freddie supposedly stole ten thousand from him, and Red owes this amount to Sam. The film opens with reluctant Freddie in all her wedding finery racing madly down a dirt road in an ugly midwestern milieu chased by a muscle car filled with yowling raging men. Freddie loses and is perforce married to Sam (resplendent in a baby blue tuxedo and ruffled shirt) in an outdoor wedding held in the backyard of a very modest home. Enter Jjaks (unbeloved brother of Sam, Keanu Reeves), a loser from childhood days who is returning from a stint in the slammer. Freddie spots him after the nuptials, and for reasons best known to herself, looks to Jjaks as her salvation. He's supposedly going to get her out of the marriage and find the money that Sam has hidden. After a seduction of Jjaks subtle as a sledgehammer, they take off. The chase is on. The Clayton brothers steal cars like most people change their socks, so neither brother was ever short of transportation. After violent mayhem, dead bodies, and spectacular chase scenes, Freddie & Jjaks make their separate ways out of Minnesota and reunite (sorta).
"Feeling Minnesota" spared nothing in the talent department. Along with the principals, Tuesday Weld and Courtney Love had small roles as respectively, Mom Clayton and a dippy waitress. Special mention must go to Vincent d'Onofrio as unlovable, clumsy, hysterical Sam. He has a physical knack of stealing almost every scene he is in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lighten up People!! November 2, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This movie really is not that bad. It all depends on what kind of movie you like. If your touchy and don't like violence, don't see this movie, but if your in the mood for something that is not mainstream, by all means have some fun and see this movie. You have to realize that this is not meant to be taken seriously, and those who do will be disapointed. I liked this movie because it was funny, not in a nice way, but hey, who cares? Don't listen to these other people, they can't see beyond their own opinions enough to judge fairly. See it for yourself and then decide. This is a movie for fans of black comedy, who dislike their siblings, and love Keanu. It's not the greatest film, and was not meant to be, but it is certainly not as bad as these people are saying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Try to "feel" Feeling Minnesota April 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
First of all I agree 100% with Lauren's review. This movie would never be nominated for an oscar so if that's what you are looking for you will be disappointed; however, for what the director/script/actors are trying to achieve, they successfully achieved it. It is kind of a cross between Thelma and Louise and Pulp Fiction. If that doesn't get your curiousity whetted enough to see it..... You will enjoy this movie if you enjoy cool music and have an "attitude." Rent it out and test yourself. I personally am buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark comedy--great movie June 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
When I watched the movie for the first time, I thought the plot twists were bizarre. I found myself laughing, which surprised me because it did not dawn on me that the movie would be a comedy. The acting was very good and the characters well developed. Oh yeah, Keanu looked delicious, all scruffy,worn...perfect.

I cannot believe how bad this film is. If people actually behave in this brutal, amoral manner, there is little hope for humankind.
