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 quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. Given the cast members (Steve Buscemi, Samuel L. Jackson, John Turturro) I thought it had promise, but frankly it was just horrible. It seemed more like a high school film project than an actual movie, and you got the impression that people were reciting lines rather than acting. Not sure how that's possible with such a high caliber cast, but somehow they managed it. I'm all for low budget indie films, but this one's really not worth the time.

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.

In Ray Mancini's book, the good son he devotes a lot of time talking about the production of this movie. He was a very integral part of this film getting made and he also has a small role in it. But he is deathly not the highlight of the movie, so if there's nothing to do after you finish the book, and the documentary and it's raining and you're all by your lonesome I suggest you watch it, I also suggest you watch a little documentary called Youngstown still standing Johnny Irish has strong connections to the Youngstown, Warren, area so all these topics hold a special place in Johnny Irish heart peace out and go Penguins respectfully Johnny Irish

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.

This oddball film isn't for everyone, but it is one of my favorites for its cast of great actors in wacky over-the-top character roles. The plot is silly, the soundtrack is a bit hokey, and the cinematography is not big-studio grade, but this little film has a lot of heart. I used to dust off the old VCR from time to time to share this film with friends, and it always gives me major laughs. I'm so glad that it is finally being released on DVD!

This is a hilarious movie packed full of mega stars before they were mega stars! If you grew up in the city you will enjoy the urban neighborhood vibe and the crazy characters one sees in every city, each with a nickname. I don't know why this movie is not a cult classic. It should be. Gold!

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.
