American Strays Movie Review

covert michael john tilly

The big name cast may lure you, but you'll be chafing at the bit within the first few seconds of Michael Covert's American Strays. If Luke Perry wanted to terminate his status as a heartthrob, this lousy movie would do the trick, if any of his fan club members ever bother to rent American Strays. And what is Oscar nominee Jennifer Tilly doing here—slumming? With bad luck, this one might be played endlessly on cable television, dissolving the luster of each and every participant. Disjointed and dumb. woof!

1996 (R) 97m/C Carol Kane, Jennifer Tilly, Eric Roberts, John Savage, Luke Perry, Joe Viterelli, James Russo, Vonte Sweet, Sam Jones, Brion James, Toni Kalem, Melora Walters; D: Michael Covert; W: Michael Covert; C: Sead Mutarevic; M: John Graham. VHS, DVD
