      Sometimes you think a given genre is washed out. You think maybe they can make the movie better but not different. Then a title like this comes along. Trigger Happy is a movie unto itself. It's a gangster movie that pushes the entire genre into the realm of myth, but with the tongue at least lightly placed in the cheak. Here, the players and situations are archetypal to the point of flirting with self parody. The story begins a short while before Vic, the owner of a swanky nightclub, is due to be let out of a mental institution. Those vying for power or a piece of his empire must now make their move. Among the players is Kyle McLachlan, who rests his hopes on a quick hired gun. There is also Burt Reynolds and his boys, Michael J. Pollard, who's been running the club in Vic's absense and Gabriel Byrne who is supposed to be one of Vic's right hand men. There's more, but why spoil it. Suffice it to say you have a great ensemble cast including Jeff Goldblum, Diane Lane, Ellen Barkin, Gregory Heinz, Richard Dreyfuss and a small handfull of cameos. It's a nifty story, with nifty tough-guy padder. Babes, guns, double crosses and all around wonderful performances. If this played the theatres, I don't remember it and it's a shame. It's so much better than most of the flicks out there, I makes you wonder why MGM didn't get behind it.
