Playing God is good!,
This review is from: Playing God (1997) David Duchovny. Angelina Jolie (VHS Tape)
I wasn't expecting too much from this film, but I was surprised to find that Playing God is good! It centres on David Duchovny's drug addicted and disgraced surgeon who saves the life of a chap in a bar, only to find himself befriended by the chap's criminally-inclined boss (Timothy Hutton) and his girlfriend (Angelina Jolie). When the FBI realise that they can get to the boss via the doctor, things start getting very dangerous for both Duchovny and Jolie who spend the last half of the film trying to get away from bonkers hippie Hutton and the FBI with their lives intact. David Duchovny and Angelina Jolie were excellent as our tainted heroes and I was surprised at how likable Timothy Hutton's baddie was. Personally, I would not have dumped him for Duchovny but, hey, they never asked for my opinion!
