there are some really funny moments between broderick & moore here, dialogue-wise, but mostly i felt like the film was unraveling the whole time (not in a good way). i'm interested in knowing more about how faithful the adaptation is from the play.
Attempt to translate Shawn's stilted dialogue to the big screen doesn't really work here. It probably needed to make New York feel less like a Woody Allen universe and instead MUCH stranger. Still the performance are accomplished in making these hateful characters come to alienated life.
