Milwaukee, Minnesota ★★ 2003 (R)
Chaotic comedy features a number of oddballs who inhabit a weird Midwestern world.

When mom dies suddenly, Albert is left at the mercy of various con artists who want a piece of his inheritance and fishing prize money. Dern plays a kindly protector to Albert, who has more on the ball than people suspect. Mindel's feature debut. 95m/C DVD . US Troy Garity, Alison Folland, Randy Quaid, Bruce Dern, Hank Harris, Debra Monk, Josh Brolin, Holly Woodlawn; D: Allan Mindel; W: Richard D. (R.D.) Murphy; C: Bernd Heinl.
