:: The best supporting performance is by Vincent D'Onofrio, as Gary's older brother: He does exactly what is required, finds the right notes, and is so convincing we hardly notice he is cleaning his ears with separate handkerchiefs.

~ Roger Ebert ~ June 1, 2006

:: "Vincent D'Onofrio, who plays Gary's brother, has one of the finest scenes of all, a real tour de force, as he wordlesslyexpresses his frustration with Gary by uncricking his neck and, peculiarly, using the corners of a handkerchief to clean the waxout of his ears. The routine is so off-the-wall, you can't help laughing."

:: His older brother played by Vincent D'Onofrio is funnier and he looks like Pooh-Bear back from “The Salton Sea” with his nose glued back on and wearing a really bad suit. But the people at central casting did everything they could to surround the male lead with male supporting actors who were even less funny than he was. And less articulate.

Thank goodness they didn’t give D’Onofrio any lines. Three more and he would have stolen the show. Even in that suit.

:: Vincent D'Onofrio breathes life into what could have been a forgettable, cardboard character as one of Gary's brothers, who share the Chicago tour-bus business. Then again, he's good in everything, and with his jerky, nervous delivery, you never know what to expect - but you know you want to watch and find out.

:: "Vincent D'Onofrio as Vaughn's older brother has this one amazing scene of such pure physical awkwardness it's almost worth enduring the whole film to see."
