In addition to the scenic Clifton (and Botany Village) settings, Split Ends charms with traditional Scottish music and even a few moments with a bagpiper. Vincent Pastore gives an accurate portrayal of a certain type of Jersey guy, and Janet Sarno enchants as Aunt Connie Provenzano, the woman with the Hoboken cannoli connection.
Split Ends is a sweet movie—not terribly deep—that gives the viewer a happy conclusion to small vs. big, and dollars vs. cents. Extras include a trailer and photo gallery.
Bottom Line: Would I buy/rent Split Ends? Rent (or stream); it’s escapist fare that works.
