Entertaining Flick
26 March 2003 | by mooncrickitSee all my reviews

I bought "One Good Turn" from a yard sale for $2.00 and it was worth every penny. I wanted it because of James Remar and Suzi Amis as I have seen and liked the movies they have been in. Remar has his usual bad guy role although he does make you like him at times. You even feel sorry for him in the film, too. As someone has already stated in another review, he really is an underrated actor. Amis has the role of an anguished wife both from a past mistake and a workaholic husband played by Lenny Von Dohlen. The premise for this movie is that Remar had saved Dohlen from a burning car many years ago and Dohlen had never really gotten the chance to properly thank Remar. They have a chance meeting on the street and strike up a conversation. Remar is down on his luck while Dohlen is quite successful. As expected, Dohlen wants to help out the man who saved his life and he offers him a job. This movie had twists and turns and sometimes you could figure out what was going to happen next but there are a couple of times you might not. All in all, this is an entertaining flick and is worth the rental or if you can snag a copy as cheap as I did, worth owning.
