One Night at McCool's

Three would-be saps (Matt Dillon, Paul Reiser and John Goodman) recount their differing stories of meeting and romancing the seemingly perfect girl (Liv Tyler). Of course, she's a mean mistreater and is leading them all along by the nose-ring. Dillon gets the worst of it as the boyfriend forced to participate in a couple of "accidental" murders. First-time Norwegian director Harald Zwart tries his best to make a hip black comedy, but (like so many of these things) he just can't seem to nail down a consistent tone. Unpleasantries such as rape and murder mingle uncomfortably with slapstick farce and rude sex comedy. Part Rashomon, part Pulp Fiction, part Porkey's. 93 minutes
