Living on the edge of sanity, he idles away his time drinking, gambling and womanizing. But when Henry falls for quirky barfly Jan (Lili Taylor), his hard-living ways sabotage the relationship. With Marisa Tomei, Fisher Stevens, Adrienne Shelly. 94 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English (SDH), Spanish; deleted scenes; "making of" documentary.
