Life isn't Fair. This Post-Modern, Self-Aware, Irreverent, sometimes Crude and Lewd Black Comedy is Wheelhouse for Writer-Director Joe Carnahan.
Life isn't Fair ...for the Movie's Protagonist "Stretch" a Limo-Driver Loser that through some "Fateful" Events has a Chance to "Man-Up" and take Control of His Life that Spins out of Control on a Regular Basis.
He barely makes a Living Chauffeuring Hollywood Types and Fat Cats as They make Whoopee with Their "Ill Gotten Gains" and are Cruel Carnivores. He's Broke and Heavily in Debt to the Mob and the "Love of His Life" Leaves Him for a NFL Quarterback who makes Millions. Life isn't Fair.
This is a Raucous Ride that brings out Adjectives like...Fun...Wild...Wacky...Those sort of Reactions. It's one of those that is Not for Everyone.
But it is a Smart, Rapidly Paced Picture that, if You Don't Mind Foul Language, Unsettling Satirical Set-Pieces about Indulgences like Drug Abuse, Sex, and Manipulative Ugly "Alpha" Types, there is much Enjoyment to be had in this Type of Thing.
A Good Cast Rides the Cutting Edge for All its Worth. It goes Over the Top at times but that's the Template, so Enjoy. Patrick Wilson seems Effortless in Bringing to Life a Likable Loser that is Game when the Chips are Down and All seems Lost.
The Movie, for some Inexplicable Reason was Released Straight to Video and Ignored and Abandoned by the Suits. Considering the Deluge of Dreck that is in Theaters on a Regular Basis it is really a Shame that this one got the Shaft. Life isn't Fair.
A hard-luck limo driver struggles to go straight and pay off a debt to his bookie. He takes on a job with a crazed passenger, whose sought-after ledger implicates some seriously dangerous criminals.
