EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH (2004) (Netflix) – NOT the Dane Cook one; the Matt Dillon one. Didn’t fare too well with the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, but it’s fine. Many had complaints about the final act, but it does tie up nicely, and provides some amusing character based moments on its way there. It’s no FALLING DOWN, but it starts off part-way down that road.
YOU KILL ME (2007) (Netflix)- This is the first film I can think of where I really like Téa Leoni’s acting. She really plays well against Ben Kingsley, and their characters are well designed and quite well played. I wasn’t sure about the secondary storyline in Buffalo, but it paid off in the end.
