Sometimes all you can do is shrug when you see an excellent cast, an interested premise and such amazingly awful execution into a film that should’ve been so much better than it is.
Zipper follows a hot shot Federal prosecutor (Patrick Wilson) who has one huge problem: he likes sex more than the average man. It’s to the point where using hookers is normal and his life spirals out of control in his lust for escort tail; he’s being groomed for higher office and his inability to control his lust for strange tang threatens to ruin his life.
Poised as the next great adult thriller, it’s really just a bad episode of House of Cards. There’s a reason why this got awful word of mouth and couldn’t find its way into theaters; it’s a great idea with a first rate cast that’s just exceptionally awful in execution.
Nothing of note.
