I'd never heard of this film, when I stumbled across it at Blockbuster. I liked the premise; a guy who investigates Darwin Awards type cases for an insurance company. The cast was impressive as well, Joseph Fiennes and Winona Ryder play the main characters, with just about every other character in the film played by somebody fairly well known. Look at this list: David Arquette, Josh Charles, Judah Friedlander, Lukas Haas, Juliette Lewis, Julianna Margulies, Tim Blake Nelson, Chris Penn, D.B. Sweeney, Robin Tunney, Wilmer Valderrama - Most of these actors showing up for just a few minutes each. Somebody had some pull in the casting of this film.
It was fun to see some of the all time great Darwin Awards put on film, rocket car and dynamite dog, among others. The filmmaking could have used a little more pizazz, it all seemed a little flat. But it kept us entertained and laughing through most of the film.
