'$5 a Day'
(Christopher Walken, Alessandro Nivola, Sharon Stone, Dean Cain, Peter Coyote, et al / DVD / NR / 2010 / Anchor Bay Entertainment)

Overview: Christopher Walken is hilarious as Nat, an eccentric con-artist and deadbeat dad dying to reconnect with his troubled son, Flynn (Alessandro Nivola, The Eye, Laurel Canyon). Diagnosed with a terminal illness, Nat shanghais his reluctant son into driving him cross-country for experimental medical treatment. Low on cash, they pull off increasingly ridiculous and embarrassing schemes along the way to reach their destination spending only $5 a day.

DVD Verdict: Richie Flynn Parker (Allesandro Nivola) is unhappy. He is a conservative Health inspector of restaurants (fired when his police record is uncovered), is married to Maggie (the always lovely Amanda Peet), and one day he discovers a letter from his gallivanting grifter father, Nat Parker - the ALWAYS BRILLIANT IN WHATEVER HE DOES, Christopher Walken!

Walken, in yet another wonderfully timed comedic role, claims he is dying from a brain tumor and needs a ride to New Mexico for some special treatment. And, because Flynn's life is such a mess he consents to go. And so, father and son set out in a 'Sweet and Low' advertising auto (of all things!) all the way to New Mexico.

Along the way, Nat shows how he can live on $5 a day by sleeping in empty homes, pulling shenanigans to get free food, entry into parties; not to mention both money and gas! Along the way the two make stops - including a visit to Flynn's previous babysitter Dolores (Sharon Stone), a woman who knows a thing or two about how to brighten Nat's life! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
