Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine56.6 - I find it hard to believe Davis could bulldoze his house in an affluent neighborhood and not a soul calls the police. The scene with he and Chris in the woods with the gun is just irresponsible to even put out there, cause some kid's gonna try it and accidentally kill someone. But is the movie worth checking out? I'd say yes. I like movies which mix drama and black comedy.
