Flick of the Day

Director: Peter O'Fallon
Actors: Christopher Walken, Denis Leary, Henry Thomas, Jeremy Sisto, Johnny Galecki, Sean Patrick Flanery, Jay Mohr, Laura Harris, Brad Garrett, Laura San Giacomo, Nina Siemaszko, Frank Whalen
Year: 1997

Synopsis: In order to find a missing girl, a group of friends kidnap a mob boss.

With a cast mostly made up of men, "Suicide Kings" is considered by many to be a 'guy's movie'. I have to disagree. Yes, there is an exceptional amount of testosterone on screen, but this film is character and plot driven (as opposed to action). When a close group of friends scheme to hold a mob boss (Walken) hostage, things take a turn for the worse when they realize they didn't anticipate everything. It's original, funny (Walken, Leary, and Galecki stand out), and a bit suspenseful. Take a chance on it.
