Bullets Over Broadway
I quite enjoyed this one, basically its about struggling playwright who has to cast a mobsters girlfriend in his new show, because the mobster put up the money for it. He gets in some other talent, and then the trouble and laughs unfold. Everyone is really good in this, thank goodness there was no Woody Allen actually in it, as John Cusack played the role well. The stand outs of course are Jennifer Tilly as the mobsters girlfriend, a perfect fit for her, she plays it to perfection. And then there is Diane Wiest, who is so great as Helen Sinclair, a well deserved Oscar I must say. Chazz Palminteri does his job, he's always good. I thought Jim Broadbent was a hoot as Warner Purcell as well, a great character. Not a bad way to pass an afternoon.
