The Dark Backward: Directed by Adam Rifkin. With Judd Nelson, Bill Paxton, Wayne Newton, Lara Flynn Boyle. A man pursues stand-up comedy encouraged by his fellow garbage man. Though his friend, who accompanies him on accordion, continues to tell him how great he is, he actually stinks. When the “comedian” grows a third arm out of his back, the friend uses this twist to get him signed up with a sleazy talent agent, and it begins to look like his career is on the move, even though his girlfriend has left him.
“When I found out that this film was written by a 13 year old boy, I was, to say the least, not suprised. I am a teenager, and some of my best friends were 13 year old boys, so I can say that I understand the humor, and unfourtunatly, also find this sence of humor entertaining. But that doesnt mean I dont find this movie to be extremely bizzar. Judd Nelsonu0026#39;s character, Marty Malt, is a kind hearted man wo simply wishes to pursue his dream of becoming a stand-up comic. His u0026quot;friendu0026quot; played by Bill Paxton, is nothing but a money grubbing fair weather fan, this personality is well u0026quot;actedu0026quot; by Mr. Paxton. I only suggest this film to people who dont mind, or even enjoy strange humor, otherwise all u0026quot;pointu0026quot; to the film will be lost.”
