Freaky Deaky

Need to see things blown up? Well, its a movie kind of like that when you've got Christian Slater involved in a Elmore Leonard novel. The movie was directed by Walter Matthau's son, Charles Matthau. Its said to be Elmor Leonard's favorite novel that he ever wrote.

The story is rather retro. Oh so very 70ish. The main character is Billy Burke's Chris Mankowski who has been demoted to the Sex Crimes department.  Naturally, the character in this movie are one of a kind, thanks to Elmore Leonard.

What is fun is the bad guys and you have plenty to choose from in the movie making world. Crispin Glover is Woody Ricks. And just how bad is he. However the bad people are after him, too. Cause he's rich and he had rich parties and there are drug and he might be a bit rapey too.

Of course, being in that era, its a bit of a problem trying to prove if he raped someone. Especially, if both were on drugs at the time.

Sabina Gadecki plays Greta who Mankowski helps out and tries his best to find the justice she needs after getting mixed up with Woody Ricks.

The movie is named after a dance. Its kind of a funny story with lots of mayhem at times. Seriously its Breanne Racano's Robin who gets what she wants with the help of Christian Slater's Skip who just loves to blow things up.

This movie is a lot of fun. If only Andy Dick could have been in this film more! Its certainly fun film you can find on NetFlix.

 STORYLINE: He used to be on the bomb squad, but it's not until he transfers out that Chris Mankowski really begins juggling with dynamite. Rape and revenge are just the tip of the iceberg in a twisty tale that brings Detroit denizens to life - and occasional death - in all their seedy glory, circa 1974.

As much as I love my chick flicks I do love a good action film! This looks like a good summer watch :)
