St. John of Las Vegas - DVD Review


Starring Steve Buscemi, Romany Malco, Peter Dinklage, Sarah Silverman and Tim Blake Nelson.

Very game cast, but my goodness, they have nothing to do. This feels like two episodes of a cable series that hasn't found its voice yet.

Buscemi plays a former gambler who's moved to New Mexico, but his new job in fraud investigation sends him right back to Las Vegas, where he does not want to be. It has the air of being a comedy, and with Sarah Silverman and Romany Malco (Weeds) hanging around, I expected laughs to happen. I think I smiled once.
