A Bag of Hammers

Best friends Alan and Ben are unable to face adulthood and lead decent, moral lives, much to Alan's sister's chagrin. But when the twosome must become "fathers" to a new neighbor's son, stealing cars at funeral homes is no longer an option.

It's too little, too late for Crano's Wes Anderson-inflected innocence-disrupted project...
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
Brian Crano's very slight debut of a comedy.
Lou Lumenick, New York Post  full review
 
Mr. Canterbury's character is a Hollywood child archetype: wan and withdrawn, all monosyllables and needy stares.
Andy Webster, New York Times  full review
 
Woven amid the glib one-liners and contrived scenarios is an unexpected, and undeniably touching, sense of heart.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News  full review
 
Most of it seems baffled and unclear. Some nice ideas floating around in here, but A Bag of Hammers is one of the few movies I can remember that appears to be composed mainly of outtakes.
Rex Reed, New York Observer  full review
 
A few striking performances-Ritter, Preston, and Canterbury are especially great-smooth out what might have been a much bumpier ride.
Michelle Orange, Village Voice  full review
 
First-time feature helmer Brian Crano maneuvers some tricky tonal shifts with impressive ease in A Bag of Hammers, a droll, quirky comedy with a pleasant amount of heart.
Joe Leydon, Variety  full review
