A couple other things that John is not good at are relationships and hiding money. His wife (Kelly Reilly) wants a divorce as John consults the town's most inexpensive attorney (William Macy) whose judgement in suits and hair pieces leads one to believe he doesn't know how to use a mirror. As it turns out the dead girl had a boyfriend (Ted Levine) who knows John has his money and he wants it back.
It is difficult to hide things in a small town as the plot develops some minor complexity. The good, the bad, and the ugly of this film is the fact that it captures the rural flavor of the community with local euphemisms, accents, and slow motion talking. Depending on one's viewpoint, this can make or break the movie. John Moon, is well meaning when it comes to his family, but he is not all good and far from the brightest bulb in the pack.
A redneck art film. Not for everyone.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Amy Sloan).
He then goes to the most low rent lawyer in town to fight his divorce and get his family back. This lawyer is William H. Macy as Pitt in a role to die for, with a wardrobe that would liven up any seventies party and a hairpiece that you could write a thesis about. He plays the slime ball perfectly in what for me was no way near enough screen time. Well then things go all nasty when the guys who originally stole the money come wanting it back and they are far from being reasonable. Then the fun and games begin.
Now this is a good movie but it should have been a great one. I am a big fan of Rockwell as he starred in `Gentleman Broncos' which I will forever extol the virtues of. He is a good actor and Macy never fails to impress. But this has been in production since 2009 and many actors have signed up and then walked away, including Michael Fassbender, Alessandro Nivola, Forest Whitaker and Juliette Lewis, so there have been `production issues' as they say in industry lingo. The screenplay was adapted by Mathew F. Jones from his book and the episodic narrative can be seen in terms of chapters. However, there is a lot of mean guy mumbling, which means you can miss some of the dialogue which is a bit poor.Read more ›
