$5 a Day (5 stars)
For many of us, all we need to know about a movie is that Christopher Walken is in it. But then, we’ve all seen movies that even Walken couldn’t save. But this is no cameo: Walken is the star of the movie and in nearly every scene. I think it is much to the credit of Alessandro Nivola that he holds his own toe-to-toe with Walken. Sharon Stone was a very pleasant surprise and a far more interesting character than you may assume on first blush. I recommend this movie.
