Sink or Swim Review
By Christopher Null on Tuesday 1st November 2005
Also known as Hacks, which I think is a much better name. This little number went practically straight to video, despite its star-studded cast (just take a look!). Why? Because movies about making movies practically never work, and even when they do, it's hard to make yourself care. Sink or Swim tweaks the genre a little -- with Rea as a haggard writer who can't get his arms around an enormous task facing him down. When his "friends" swoop in to stab him in the back... well, it's a curious little picture, like I said.
