Things Change
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3.5 Stars
Things Change Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: With Jessica
Rating: PG Year: 1988 Category: Comedy
Director: David Mamet Time: 100 min. Writer: David Mamet & Shel Silverstein

Mine: Lots of fun. Great performances. David Mamet makes great films.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Simple Italian shoemaker (Ameche) agrees to take the rap for a Chicago mob murder for a fee, but the man assigned to baby-sit him for a weekend (Mantegna) decides to take the old man on a final fling before he goes to jail. Slight, sometimes flat comic fable by Mamet and Shel Silverstein is buoyed by some wonderful vignettes and endearing performances by the stars. Ameche is a joy to watch.

Completed f*cked movie. Failed to follow any of it. No real plot, just screwed.
