Idle Hands | Chicago Reader

Idle Hands

When people he knows start turning up dead, Anton (Devon Sawa) shakes himself out of a marijuana-and-satellite-TV-induced stupor and learns a dubious lesson about the dangers of idleness. Sawa is the frenetic straight man in a series of effects-oriented gags, and their splashy gore is more convincing than this incompetent horror-comedy's attempt to mock bourgeois high school dissoluteness without appearing judgmental. The mythical coveted female classmate who begs the hero, a former loser, to have sex with her and take her to the big dance—in that order—is played by Jessica Alba. Rodman Flender directed a screenplay by Terri Hughes and Ron Milbauer; with Seth Green, Elden Henson, and Vivica Fox.
