Reeling: the Movie Review Show's review of King of the Corner (1234 words)
Actor Peter Riegert makes his directing debut with a story he co-wrote with Gerald Shapiro about a 50-something non-practicing Jewish guy who is dealing with his long distance father, a problem teenage daughter and the distinct possibility of losing his job to a youngster half his age.
Peter Riegert’s likeability is a key factor in making me want to embrace “King of the Corner.” The actor was one of the key players as one of the rowdy frat boys in “Animal House” and was key among the many reasons that “Local Hero” is still one of my all-time favorite films.
Peter Riegert's immense likability factor does much to carry "King of the Corner, just as it must be responsible for attracting such an intriguing ensemble, but Riegert's directorial debut is a clunky affair of amateurish, ploddingly edited visuals and suspect story lines which weaken it almost beyond repair.
