As casts go, it's certainly eclectic: James Caan, Dolph Lundgren and Juno Temple providing support to Little Britain ’s Matt lucas in his first starring role.

Yet that’s the least weird – and most interesting – element of Jonas Åkerlund’s crass, cartoonish comedy about an oddball trying to dispose of his landlord’s corpse.

Åkerlund mostly withholds outrage in his mockery of low-rent Americana, instead serving up sub-Lynchian grotesquerie for his poorly-served stars, with only a gently ironic performance by Billy Crystal escaping Åkerlund’s descent into mean-spiritedness.
