09.01.06Netflix So after that I was still pretty pumped (not to mention hungry) so I had a midnight movie in the form of this netflix which I'd never seen but heard good things about. It has some really early screen appearances by guys who would later go on to much bigger stardom like Paul Giamottie, Sam Rockwell, Steve Zahn, Thomas Hayden Church, and Mark Ruffalo. It's about a couple deadbeat musicians who are mistaken for expert safe crackers... and wackiness ensues. Most of the comedy comes from the chemistry between Rockwell and Zahn. It's pretty fun... sort of a minor key type movie that provides solid entertainment but isn't showy or flashy enough to make that many waves... pretty off-beat and quirky... i was reminded of Welcome to Collinwood (and not just because of Sam Rockwell) quite a bit... with some The State/Stella-style humor mixed in... Michael Showalter has a small role in this by the way. I think it was actually funnier and better than Along Came Polly (the director's other work)...

a nice little light comedy to end the night with... good day.
