I first saw this movie in its original theatrical run in 1996. I was a little sceptical going in. I was thinking it was going to be just another Tarantino rip off. To my surprise it wasn't. I loved the characters and the way it was put together, it definitely had its own style. The characters are what makes this movie so great. Luke Wilson gives a great performance as Anthony the main character. Owen Wilson gives an equally great performance as Dignan, Anthony's best friend. It was easy to identify with the characters in the movie, it was like watching people you grew up with. The circumstances in the movie were unusual, but it doesn't really matter. The movie is not really about what they are doing, it's about their relationship with each other and how each they deal with what's happening. There is also a lot of humor in the movie, which adds to the character's personalities. The humor really makes the characters and there situation seem real. It's hard to explain this movie to anyone, because it really defies categorization. I would definitely recommend this movie, especially those with an offbeat sense of humor.
