    I liked The Grifters. Pretty heavy flick, though. Wrong people dying and so forth...

    Oh, and as I've said on many occasions, Grosse Pointe Blank is one of my all-time faves. The dialog is so witty.

    Doh!

    I hate being a newbie and jumping into threads inappropriately. Many apologies to all.

    You will love Eight Heads in a Duffel Bag and Grosse Point Blank...and if not, you have a money back guarentee on this recommendation.

    I haven't seen the Crying Game. I remember it being advertised though.

    Has anyone else here seen One Night at McCool's?

    Cool, lobeck - I loved it anyway!
    What about "The Full Monty" - does it count as off-beat?

    "One Night at McCool's" - have to check it out on imdb, I'm not sure...

    Ahh... The Full Monty.

    I'd say that has to be off-beat. Pretty funny movie too.

    British comedy's require a lot of attention to keep up with the dialog, but a couple more good one's are Snatch (with Brad Pitt for you ladies) and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.
