MV5BMzQ4MDU3Nzc4MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTcyNjUyMQ@@__V1_SY317_CR0,0,214,317_Review (Spoils): We have an overweight and egotistic lawyer named Billy Halleck (Robert John Burke) who ash it all, the money, the beautiful wife (Lucinda Jenney) and the downright cheating ways. But one night when he was receiving a blow job from his wife while driving he runs over a gypsy woman. This leads to the band of gypsies laying a curse on the lawyer. In time he starts to lose weight and everything is fine till it over takes him and he not able to gain any weight back, it brings a deadly concern. This wrecks his marriage, his family, his career and slowly will be the death of him. He makes a deal with Richie Ginelli (Joe Mantegna) to overtake the gypsies to lift the curse.

This storyline is pretty decent and the film is entertaining. The acting is great on all accounts even if we are missing the blood and the gore. We have acid, lots of gun shots and of course the car wreck. The film has a very tongue and cheek feel to it.

Rating: We have a Stephen King story that involves blow jobs and the beautiful Kari Wuhrer what more do I have to say…..?? Drink to the gypsies!
