Kicked in the Head: Matthew Harrison’s Second Film

Kicked in the Head, the follow-up to Matthew Harrison’s highly acclaimed first picture, is not exactly a sophomore jinx, but is’s no more than a ephemeral film, benefiting from a solid cast headed by Kevin Corrigan and Linda Fiornetino.

Despite some funny situations-parodic gunfights and car explosions in which no one gets hurt–the laughs are too scarce in a slight story overloaded with trivial incidents.

Enjoying a bigger budget, the film displayed improved production values, but little to offer beyond modest pleasures.
