Synopsis:
Bill Kincaid's (Edward Norton) life takes a downward spiral when he returns home to rural Oklahoma after receiving news of his twin brother's murder in a pot deal gone bad. Upon arrival, he finds that reports of Brady's (also played by Edward Norton) death are "greatly exaggerated" and is quickly caught up in one of his brother's schemes. A scheme in which Brady requires an air-tight alibi. Despite severe doubts, Bill decides to participate in his brother's plan, choosing to spend his time as Brady with his mother, Daisy (Susan Sarandon) and Janet (Keri Russell), an educated woman who has bypassed academia in favour of a quieter life.
Meanwhile, Brady and his best friend/business partner Bolger (Tim Blake Nelson) use this perfect alibi to confront one of the area's mast notorious drug dealers, Pug Rothbaum (Richard Dreyfuss), about some unfinished business. Will Bill be prepared to risk everything to help his brother if things don't go according to plan?

Philosophy wannabe - Leaves of Grass review by CM

Certainly ambitious, cleverly constructed, but ends up as Socrates meets the Dukes of Hazzard. Not funny enough to carry the body count.
