The Ice Harvest (2005)

While I'm usually more than willing to "take the hit for the team," and sit through a lousy movie, when I started to watch The Ice Harvest, I just couldn't get into it. The premise is that John Cusack, a lawyer to the mob, has committed the perfect crime assisted by Billy Bob Thornton. However, this is no adventure into the land of "The Sopranos." Rather this story just couldn't get off the ground, and the beginning got a serious case of what the obstetricians call "failure to progress," as we went to the third club to redo the same scene yet again. I responded with a DVDectomy, and moved on to another film.

Feel free to weigh in with a comment if I jumped too soon, or not.
