"Clay Pigeons" (1998)

Clay Birdwell is a nice easy going guy who is sleeping with his best friend's wife. His problems start when his best friend commits suicide and frames him for murder. It makes him reevaluate his relationship with the widow. Then his new best friend turns out to be a serial killer.

Vince Vaughn is really creepy as the serial killer. Janeane Garofalo is great as the FBI agent. I really liked this movie. It was not as violent or graphic as it could have been given the subject. It was more or a dark comedy and I like those.

My Favorite Quote:
"Barney. Could you not ... poke the body with a stick, please."

Generally, this doesn't sound like my kind of movie, but I may have to see it because Janeane Garafolo is in it. She's a great character actress.
What part of my description turns you off?

It's not the description, it doesn't sound like the kind of film that would usually interest me. I guess the main character sounds sort of unsympathetic. :/
I didn't find Clay unsympathetic. He was a nice guy. He just seemed easily manipulated by others. If he had just gone to the police and been honest he would not have had so many problems.
