Alton (Vincent D'Onofrio) runs a pawn shop in a small southern town. It provides the connecting link for three stories which are also loosely linked. The first tale involves the misadventures of crack heads wanting to rob their manufacturer. The second tale involves Richard (Matt Dillon) attempting to track down his long lost wife (Pell James). The third involves a down on his luck Elvis impersonator (Brendan Fraser).

This could be described as a grindhouse, "Creepshow" style. The episodes are clever dark comedy, marvelously written, directed, and acted. For those like their films on the oddball Tarantino side, check this one out. Yes, it had me laughing out loud, especially the first episode.

Warning: Film contains scenes of captive women who had been abused and treats it on the light side.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, N-word, Masturbation (Elijah Wood) TV screen sex, nudity (Pell James, plus many more)

I was amazed to see this film's 12 percent rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Proves how narrow-minded and establishment-oriented that site has become. This film is wonderful. The first episode is worth the price of admission. The second one is pretty extreme but just keeping reminding yourself that it's going to have a punchline. And Brendan Fraser's sad-sack Elvis impersonator is an inspiration for us all. All the actors are wonderful and you also get the unbeatable Vincent D'Onofrio as a bookend character for all the segments.

The first part of this movie is awesome! Paul Walker was the best, it's really sad that he doesn't get the credit that he deserves as an actor. He really needs to do more movies like this, ones that really show his skills. All acting in this movie was superb and Wayne Kramer's directing was great too. Good movie overall, but the high rating is for the first part.

This movie isn't something you should let your children watch. It's star-studded by some of the biggest actors in recent film history and while you think they'll be prevalent throughout the movie- they're not, at least visually. Pay close attention to little details, as each of the stories is tied to the next, because that ending will have you gasping in your seat. The first story is hilarious, Paul Walker's accent as a hillbilly is on point! Make sure you keep your eye out for that Elvis impersonator too! This movie isn't one of those blockbusters and it isn't meant to be one, if you watch it, do it with that in mind. It's not meant to keep you on the edge of your seat but rather to keep you laughing. If you get into it enough, you'll want to rewatch it for anything you may have missed.

I really liked it. If you see the trailer for it, and you think it's going to be good, you are in for a treat. This story was woven together better than any other like this I've seen.

It is shocking, wrong, twisted, and hilarious.

That said, it is NOT for everyone. Some of the scenes will make you cringe

Let me start off by saying that this is maybe the most genuinely fun dark comedy I've seen in a long, long time. The three stories were all excellent, with great performances by Matt Dillon and Paul Walker (worth watching just for the way he moves his fingers). On the surface, this movie would seem analogous to a dinner at a Chinese restaurant; that is, thoroughly enjoyed but quickly forgotten. Yet, many deep questions keep coming to mind regarding one of the movie's core themes: Salvation. Specifically the characters of "The Man" and the Preacher. "The Man" shows up in a pickup truck, looking like the Marlboro man dressed in black and offers salvation in the form of a shotgun. The recipient of his largess quickly puts the shotgun to deadly use, killing his backstabbing buddies along with himself. In contrast, we have the Preacher man, dressed in white, who hangs around a local restaurant called "The Fire Pit". He has the ability to seemingly appear from nowhere and hands out pamphlets that appear to have Satan drawn on them. Oh, and he goes around making deals for people's souls. In contrast to "The Man", the result of the Preacher's dealings are pretty benign. Thanks to the Preacher, Ricky Baldowski (the Elvis impersonator) can suddenly belt out a version of "Amazing Grace" that is good enough to make old enemies (like feuding barbers Doc and Cook) make up. So, who is offering salvation and who is offering damnation? Is the point that we can't tell the difference? Darned if I know.

RIP PAUL WALKER. Paul Walker was wonderful in this film for the short time he was in it. I never thought he could play such a great dumb hick. He was really good at it and took me by suprise. The movie is different and kinda weird...but good.

Big Fan of Vincent D'Onofrio ...as usual, he did not disappoint! Loved it! If you are a fan of his ( and you should be) you will love his role in this movie.
