The Hard Word (2003)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Oct 07, 2003; DVD Release Date: Oct 07, 2003; Movie Rated: R; Genres: Comedy, Mystery and Thriller; With: Rachel Griffiths and Guy Pearce; Distributor: Lions Gate Films

Dear Guy: You really made our heads spin with your memory-impaired-man-on-the-revenge-warpath performance in Memento. And you were just so perfectly righteous as straight-laced Lieut. Ed Exley in L.A. Confidential. So what are you doing in a half-baked heist flick that -- while entertaining at times -- is just another ''one last score'' hack job? And I hope it wasn't your idea to force that hideous Loni Anderson wig on Griffiths. EXTRAS One more thing, Guy: Please make sure your next DVD features something a little more special than a few lame trailers. 'Cause that's partly why we're giving this one a C. Love, Missy Schwartz
