Rated 4.0

Sam Rockwell totally owns it as Victor, a sex addict who fakes choking in expensive restaurants to get rich folks to save him and send him money. The money goes to the pricey hospital where his mother (Anjelica Huston) resides. Victor spends his days as an historical interpreter, wearing a funny hat and trying to screw the milkmaids. It’s all very funny thanks to Rockwell and director Clark Gregg, who also wrote the screenplay based on the Chuck Palahniuk novel. Gregg also has a role in the movie, and a scene involving him, Rockwell and Bijou Phillips is unbelievable. Rockwell’s ability to pull off this scene and his performance in this film are further proof of his genius. Huston is good as the mother, especially in the flashbacks that explain the origins of Victor’s adult problems. This movie is a lot of fun.
