Greetings from Kenosha, WI! Where Ordinary Folks Can Make a Killing.
Good movie! I really liked this movie. It did remind me of Fargo in some ways and Greg Kinnear was excellent as the bumbling,slightly crooked insurance agent. The film maintains a steady pace, each detail is th...

Harmlessly enjoyable and filled with amusing twists and turns, but is pummeled by an twist ending that is way too complex and clever for its own good.

At a convention, Mickey Prohaska(Greg Kinnear), an insurance salesman, not only loses his shirt and money, but also his wallet which turns up quickly. All of which only adds to the problems he has been having lately, including with his wife(Lea Thompson). At least, he hires Bob...

Thin Ice boasts an impressive cast, with the always funny and charismatic Greg Kinnear, teamed well with Alan Arkin, and has a unique set up with some generally funny moments. The story-line and script, however, are largely incoherent, with an especially frustrating ending that u...

This movie tries a bit too hard to be a cross between Cohen brothers and Hitchcock. The plot is actually not bad, but the tone of the movie is way off - instead of generating suspense, it tries to be quirky, but the humor is forced and not really that funny.

The comedy-drama Thin Ice -- about a bumbling upper-midwest, small-town insurance agent played by Greg Kinnear (As Good As It Gets, Auto Focus, Little Miss Sunshine) -- wants to be a nice-cross between similar crime/caper films like A Simple Plan and Fargo; but the ice is too thi...

An interesting concept and the makings of what could have been a cool scam. If only it wasn't burdened by an extremely slow story that took way too long to get to its climax. Then, when it did, it only maintained it's interesting edge for about 10 minutes. The scam turned out ...
