One Night At McCool’s (2001)

Harald Zwart directs Liv Tyler, Matt Dillon and Michael Douglas in this crime comedy where three different men become obsessed with a low-rent femme fatale who will do anything to live in the perfect home.

James M Cain meets There’s Something About Mary. Silly little movie that supplies the usually drippy Tyler with something a bit more vivacious. Strong comedy support from Paul Reiser and John Goodman. Michael Douglas steals the show as a bingo loving hitman. The third act grinds its gears for 10 minutes more than its worth. It feels like we are never leaving that living room set but the overburdened farce finally ends on three high impact punchlines.
