You might call The Big Kahuna just one more night in the slow decline of a salesman. These salesman call themselves marketing guys. They work for a industrial lubrication company and their job is spread enough hospitality around to ease some accounts into their company's coffers.
There's almost no action, or even
movement, in The Big Kahuna. Virtually the entire film unfolds
in the confines of a lackluster hotel suite overlooking downtown
Wichita, Kansas. The energy depends on dialogue, and Kevin
Spacey, playing Bill, revs up the quick quips with his usual
panache, but it's an uphill battle to inject much life or even
pathos into this rather numbing filming of a stage play. Danny
DeVito has an uncharacteristically drab part playing veteran
salesman Phil and Peter Facinelli does credible work assaying
the innocence young newcomer Bob.
