yep. Decent performances (though Nicholson did some scenery chewing). No heart to the film as there was to the novel, though. Like I said, as an adaptation it sucked. As a stand alone film, it was okay.Well ski-mom duce, if being scared sh1tless means being affected, then I was affected. Possibly even infected! And I think Scatman Crother's performance was incredible. It kind of gave this great individual who had been around for decades a great chance to show what he could do in a dramatic role. He was really the hero of the film. And I may be in the minority, but I thought Shelly Duvall was fantastic.
