Tired & Worn Out
16 January 2014 | by dickclarkproductionsSee all my reviews

Thornton & Epperson failed miserably on this one. Same old stereotypical Southern bullshit. Totally unbelievable. Terms like "back in the day" came into America's vernacular in the 90's, not in this period piece. One wonders why "Bucktooth Billy" has to be so skin crawling gross i.e the masturbation scene. The script could have easily been written by a couple high school kids making no one laugh but themselves. Thornton vowed he would never direct again after super-bomb, "All The Pretty Horses". Too bad he broke his promise. Obviously a "one trick pony", ("Sling Blade") which also, by the way, set his home State of Arkansas's image back 50 years. We have no use for him here in his home State. His infamous radio interview on a Canadian radio station,(YouTube), showed us all what a dick he really is. Kevin bacon is great, even in this piece of crap. And for once Robert Duvall didn't talk with his hands
