Man Trouble (1992) (part 1 of 4)
The Cast of Characters:
Harry Bliss (Jack Nicholson). Yes, I am putting Jack onto the site. Believe me, it hurts like hell, and I feel terrible for it, but then again he did make the movie in the first place, so it’s not like I’m going after an innocent man. Jack plays a sleazy trainer of guard dogs who may or may not be a bad guy, and despite being played by one of the most charismatic actors working today, is absolutely boring and unlikable.
Joan Spruance (Ellen Barkin). An annoyingly dumb opera singer who finds herself in need of a guard dog, played by an actress who apparently has nothing better to do.
Redmond Layls (Harry Dean Stanton). Menacing billionaire ex of Joan’s sister who’s really just here to complicate things, period.
Andy Ellerman (Beverly D’Angelo). Joan’s eccentric (spelled “annoying”) sister. An author with a big mouth, and a personality that makes “grating” seem too moderate a description.
Eddy Revere (Michael McKean). A friend of Joan’s, and prime example of the Law of the Economy of Characters.
