Lifestyles of the Insufferably Self-Hating

Our protagonist is in trouble plenty. It is not enough that he is the heir to one of the richest men in the state, that he has met with success as a writer, and that he is a college teacher. He must work out his own salvation through his own self-destruction, burning his loan sharks(s) (there are several), his family, and his none-too-bright student, with whom he engages in more self-destruction by having sex with her.

Yet the line must be drawn somewhere. He is unwilling to sacrifice the life of one of his student athletes, who initially resists a loan shark's offer of easy money, then gives in, and then switches to get a better deal. And, yes! He plays great ball. Then he plays flaccid ball. Then he plays great ball!

And all are redeemed.


The sole redemptive moment in the story is John Goodman's character's "F*ck You" speech, which is an illustration of what an idiot the protagonist has been by squandering more than two million, when he could have lived modestly and told the world, "F*ck You!." Goodman really delivers on this, and the moving is worth watching just to catch the wisdom he imparts.

A big fan of Mark Wahlberg, I am not sure that as a kid from Southie he is quite able to carry off the look of the disaffected and dissipated rich. Better will be forthcoming, I do hope.

Great cast, Great cinematography, Great musical score....don't get why this film never received the respect it deserved. Mark, Brie and Goodman at their best.

What a Jerk

Wahlberg! I expected a lot more. Normally when I see he is in a movie it turns out pretty good. But not this time. When you don't like the main character it is hard to enjoy the movie. If you ate at a restaurant and the food was bad, would you go back again? No. Michael Williams and John Goodman did an excellent job portraying big time bad guys. But it was not enough because Markie Mark was unlikable. I also found the story predictable. My advice. Don't watch this.
