IDLE HANDS (1999) **1/2

I was thoroughly impressed with teen heart-throb Devon Sawa in this movie. He pulled off what not too many actors can. The physical comedy, especially the scenes involving his hand, was tremendously believable. What I didnít find believable was his seemingly unsentimentality when those close to him begin to die.

The movie was fairly good at combining humour and moderate suspense and gore. What I really didnít like was the bottle in Seth Greenís characterís head. It looked dumb, and got on my nerves almost immediately. The climax of the film also left much to be desired and reminded me too much of an evil episode of ďThe Addams FamilyĒ. It started off well, but ended poorly. Itís still worth a watch though.
