FEATURED PLAYERS INCLUDE BRAD ("THELMA & LOUISE") PITT AND CATHERINE KEENER, THE LATTER PLAYING THE WOMAN WHO GETS JOHNNY TO CONFRONT SOME REAL ISSUES. OF THIS COMIC FABLE WHICH MARKS THE DIRECTORIAL DEBUT OF CAMERAMAN TOM DICILLO: "AN IMAGINATIVE AND DARING WORK ... SLYLY COMIC WITH A STRONG MORAL SPINE, IT AMUSES AS WELL AS SHOCKS."
