Deadfall (1993)

How bad is it? It's a textbook for overacting.
Should you see it? Yes. Just for the cast.
That fake baldness is the most realistic thing in the film (you're bald, Nic!)

You know how Nic Cage has become famous for eye-rolling, screaming, over-the-top scenery chewing? This is Nic at his Nic'iest. He accidentally kills his father, James Coburn, then carries out his dying wish to recover stuff stolen by Coburn's twin brother (also Coburn), but the brother is a con-man and Nic ends up increasingly involved in schemes and escapades. This film also has Peter Fonda, Charlie Sheen and Talia Shire (related to the writer/director Chris Coppola, as is Cage). And Micky Dolenz appears! Keep this film in mind if you ever play 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon.
