that I kept thinking of
Thompson as a teenage
Lange.

Some Kind of Wonderful

gave me a much more re-
warding time than I had ex-
pected.
Tin Men, (Rated: R) on the
other hand, was a disap-
pointment to me. I am not
among the reviewers and
viewers who love this one.
Maybe it was because it is
promoted as a comedy, when
it really isn't so much of a
comedy as a neo-realistic look
at the world of scammy
salesmen.
There are so many un-
pleasant characters in Tin
Men that I felt unpleasant
and squirmy all the way
through. I needed someone to
root for. Neither Richard
Dreyfuss nor Danny DeVito
plays the kind of character
you root for.
I've loved DeVito when he
played obnoxious but harm-
less bad guys, when he's a
funny villain like Captain
Hook. But here he plays for
real and it's unsettling.
Dreyfuss always comes off
brash and arrogant and you
get that here, too, though
somewhat toned down.
Maybe the thing that
bothered me the most was
that Tin Men is a watered
down, bowdlerized version of
the stage hit, Glengarry Glen
Ross. The characters, the
motivations, the dialogue
seem like a direct lift from
that Broadway smash. I was
shocked to see one of the
play's characters, the boss,
lifted intact from the play;
and if memory serves cor-
rectly, played by the same ac-
tor, Brad Sullivan.!
