"The plot of the film delivers a number of satisfying twists and turns," claims Columbia Pictures in a press handout for this crime story set in the Florida Everglades. "To ensure that audiences can fully enjoy these surprises, we ask that you please not disclose the events and ending." So let me concentrate, rather, on disclosing the philosophy of the movie, which John McNaughton directed from a screenplay by Stephen Peters. What I'm supposed to find "satisfying" is predicated on the idea that almost everyone in the world is trash. Unfortunately, when one goes along with this premise, who does what and to whom doesn't matter a whole lot. Maybe the film will keep you amused—and maybe not. Despite the cast—Kevin Bacon, Matt Dillon, Neve Campbell, Denise Richards, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Theresa Russell, Robert Wagner, and Bill Murray—I found it preposterous.
