One wants to sightsee, the other is interested in more hedonistic action, and ends up getting involved with a dwarf, prostitute, and drugs. Just when things can't get more complicated, their foul-mouthed boss arrives, and then the pawpaw really hits the fan.

James Berardinelli quote iconIn the final analysis, while there are some pleasures to be gained from watching In Bruges - especially during the first 75 minutes - the film's discouraging climax and conclusion make it difficult to recommend.
