Annoying, always yelling
One of the worst movie experiences of my life. Felt like walking out, but stayed with the hope that this film would have some redeeming quality. Never happened. Much gratuitous swear words and some disgusting scenes. Some scenes were inexplicable, which made the plot a little hard to follow.
Throughout the entire movie is the nagging question of how does a jeweler with this thug clientele not have a weapon? He gets bullied, beaten, hung out a window, stuffed in a trunk, punched in public in front of witnesses, thrown into a fountain. He has no backup. It's just one continuous shouting match. The uncut opal becomes secondary to the interiors of the world of gems. We see there is no value but the sentiment we attach to jewels.
Well done. Inside look at the frantic unsafe pace of betting and the pursuit of wealth. Opals are considered bad luck, they're fragile stones. This story takes us from the opal mines in africa mined by Ethiopian Jews to it journey into New Yorks maze of jewelers, auctions, buyers, betters.
I think I had an epileptic seizure. In case you don’t know, that isn’t fun
Simply enjoyed the entire movie - despite the bad language....Sanler was brilliant as was the storyline!
Painful. Frenetic and pointless.
This was the worst movie ever!! It should have been rated XXX
Horrible writing and acting, made worse by the frantic pace and screaming. Peaked with Happy Gilmore.
Intense all the way to the end
