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... full review

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

Brian Crano's very slight debut of a comedy. full review

Lou Lumenick, New York Post

Mr. Canterbury's character is a Hollywood child archetype: wan and withdrawn, all monosyllables and needy stares. full review

Andy Webster, New York Times

Woven amid the glib one-liners and contrived scenarios is an unexpected, and undeniably touching, sense of heart. full review

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

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. full review

Rex Reed, New York Observer

A few striking performances-Ritter, Preston, and Canterbury are especially great-smooth out what might have been a much bumpier ride. full review

Michelle Orange, Village Voice

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. full review

Joe Leydon, Variety
