    I made you an alphabet meals.

    Ashby are one of those films I have seen a couple of times and still entertained me. The humor hits the jackpot that some point cracks the pot. An underrated norm movie that tackles commitment to a stranger slash neighbourhood which turned out to be an escaped, action packed adventure of the two major characters. I never seen Mickey Rourke playing damn role in a comedy genre and he still well played I guess. Rest are all too well and characters still enjoyable. Maybe a not high standard film but I personally love this film.

    Actually, you know what? This isn't half bad. Sure the delivery isn't always perfect, and sure it's somewhat of a mess, but it connects you to its characters in a way that most directors wish they could acheive. Not bad. Not bad at all.
