I wasnt really interested in this book originally, my father had implored me to read it for the last 4 years however i havent seen any films with niven in and really wasnt interested. eventually i did decide that i may as well read it becuase i had some free time.
I found it initially hard to get into but i perservered and when i got into his hilarious stories about school i was hooked, i couldnt put it down. although i knew nothing about the man or his films i found his entry to hollywood fasinating and was intregued about his relationship with a prostitute.
i am now a die hard fan, i have watched many of his films and am discovering new actors like william powell and carole… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars City Hall, 28 Dec 2003
Being a john Cusack fan I have seen most of his films, this is not like his normal characters. He doesnt speak into the camera or do his shy lovey dovey bit. However the film is very insightful, it is not Al Pachino's best role but none the less it is a powerful analysis of bribery and corruption in politics. I would advise you to watch this film when yopu have enough time to do so, it is very complex and may be hard to keep up with the plot also any die hard Cusack fans may be wary of it. however if you do give it a go you will find it to be a well scripted and directed film.

This was the first john cusack film i ever watched, since i have bought 10 of his films. The film is funny with lines such as "if you really wanted to mess me up you should have gotten to me earlier" it also delves deep into a man who doesnt realise his own bad points until his girlfriend breaks up with him and he has to reasses his life. Its a character driven film and you really feel part of the story, i would recomend it to anyone no matter what your normal film tastes because it has a bit for everyone
