Editorial Reviews

''One-Eye'' Jimmy (Sam Rockwell) is missing and the search is on! Join this wild goose chase to find Jimmy with the most outrageous group of misfits-- Junior, the thief who steals his friends' cars; Joe Head, who's always losing girlfriends to his grandfather; Lefty, all brawn and no brain; Disco Bean, who's waiting for disco to make a comeback; Colonel Ron, the Vietnam vet who fishes for sneakers; and Madame Esther, a fortune teller who sells more hand cream than predictions. Along with the F.B.I., the Catholic Church and the Mob, everyone is looking for Jimmy in this hilarious romp through the streets and alleys of Brooklyn. The all-star cast includes Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction), Steve Buscemi (Armageddon, Big Daddy), Jennifer Beals (Flashdance, The Last Days of Disco), Michael Badalucco (The Practice) and John Turturro (Do the Right Thing).

I initially chose ths video because of the many character actors involved, who I love. I was surprised how well they all played their parts to contribute to this quirky hilarious movie. If you have certain friends who share your type of humor and play on words and phrases this is for you. From the opening scene with "Joe Head) meeting the neighborhood ex-patriate film director. I smiled, chuckled then laughed at all the funny bits that are in the movie. Just watch it alone then have those special friends join you and you will be hooked. I have purchased my own personal copy as it is a keeper. All the actors have some type of funny line to share. seeing them all play supporting roles makes me appreciate the movie even more. It falls in the catagory of "Wheres Poppa" with George Seagal and "The Monster" with Roberto Begnini for off beat humor of which I am a fan. All my friends just love this movie.

This is one of those great films that you've probably never heard about.

When college film student Les comes back to his old Brooklyn neighborhood he stumbles on an opportunity to make a documentary: One-eye Jimmy has gone missing. With Joe Head (Michael Badalucco) as his guide they wander the streets, encountering all kinds of crazy characters, like Jimmy's brother Ed (Steve Buscemi), Disco Bean (John Turturro), Jimmy's mother (Anne Meara), and a hairdressing sketch artist (Jennifer Beals), but the two most outstanding performances come from Samuel L. Jackson as a burnt out Viet Nam Vet named Colonel Ron and Nick Turturro as Junior, the neighborhood theif.

While the DVD box attempts to capatalize on Jackson's recent popularity, his part in this film is actually rather small albeit hilarious. Nick Turturro has a much bigger and funnier part but the whole cast is excellent. Also present are Ray Mancini,Tony Sirico and Holt McCallany.

Sam Henry Kass, who also wrote the script, proves that a lot can be done with a low budget.

Unfortunately this DVD transfer leaves much to be desired; it looks no better than a VHS version that I bought several years ago. On top of that you need a multi-region DVD player to play this region 2 PAL disc from Australia. You would think that with all of the big stars, great acting and funny script that some American distributor would remaster this film and release it in a region 1 NTSC North America friendly version.

Still, it's fortunate that this movie is available at all. If you don't have a multi-region DVD player, try to find an American VHS tape of this movie - it's worth the trouble.

if the cast doesn't warrant giving this one a look, the laughs surely will. my theory is that the simpson's "disco stu" was created thanks to this one. basically some knuckleheads help a worried mother find her alcoholic son with some slick dectective work. the amateur sleuths basically waste time until they all end up at the same place where they continue to diss eachother. topped off by, perhaps, one of the best fight scenes ever caught on tape outside of a deli and a supporting cast now so familiar, this one is a knee slapper. not bad at all.

I have seen this movie many times and, after several people helping me search for it, I have finally found a copy to own. I must say that I am disappointed in the lack of availability as it is a great movie, extremely funny with a remarkably talented cast of critically acclaimed actors. I would recommend this film to anyone. Everyone I have forced to watch it has agreed that it is hilarious and I hope it is re-released so lots of people will be able to enjoy it without having to "search" for it.

I'm from Australia and I agree with the other reviewer wholeheartedly! The cameo performance of Jennifer Beals is a classic, but he forgot to mention the great Steve Buscemi. His is really the central role, but the whole film is so clever and hilarious!

A brilliant comedy with John Turturro, Samual L Jackson, Steve Buscemi, and many other notable actors.

It got fantastic reviews at the time, but it didn't stay in theaters long & somehow got missed by the mainstream. Now it's somewhat rare, and not yet on DVD. I definately suggest checking it out.
