100 Mile Rule. Dir. Brent Huff. Perf. Jake Weber, Maria Bello, David Thornton, Michael McKean, Nick Chinlund, Shawn Huff. Velocity Home Entertainment, 2002. Three Detroit salesmen hit LA for a two-week business trip that promptly devolves into a cascade of secrets, guilt, peer pressure, and stupidity.A riotous romp – you can’t believe these guys, and yet you somehow pull for them. Weber reigns, and I have a whole new respect for Thompson (who does, in fact seem to fit the bill as Mr. Cyndi Lauper). To see Weber in wholly different and dazzling juxtaposition, queue up the pilot episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
