Bruce Willis previously starred in Color of Night (1994), then five years later Willis starred in Breakfast of Champions (1999). In fact this is the correct order as part everyday life, as "Night" comes before "Breakfast", by just taking those specific words from both of the film titles. See more »
In the score listings - "Borrowed Borodin" by K.Trout (The main tune of this movie is "Stranger in Paradise", which is a "remake" of A.P.Borodin's Polovtsian Dances from "The Prince Igor". K.Trout is one of the principal characters of the movie) See more »
Yes,"Breakfast Of Champions" is a brilliant original literary work by Kurt Vonnegut.No,the film adaptation does not do justice to the multi-layered masterpiece.Sure,maybe Robert Altman,Terry Gilliam,or David Lynch might have made better versions of it than Alan Rudolph.But a 4.1?When derivative pieces like "Disturbia",or mindless action films(I could name 50)are scoring 6's and 7's on IMDb,something is seriously out of whack.The performances alone in Breakfast are worth the price of admission,and it's got some quirky,twisted little comic moments in it.Maybe it didn't quite capture the profundity of the book like Slaughterhouse Five did,but c'mon,let's get real here.I think that maybe hardcore cult film afficianados thought it was too commercial(or something?),and the general audience out there didn't really give a rat's ass either way,so I guess that explains the 4.1.I'm giving it a well-deserved 6.Thanks.
