Time Out says

Pittsburgh trash collector Nicky Luciano (Hulce), dropped on his head as a boy (the truth about that event is held over for a last-reel revelation), is all misguided good intentions, easily led (he runs drugs unknowingly for neighbourhood hoods), and clearly a considerable burden to his brother Gino (Liotta). Constantly having to fend off Nicky's fears of abandonment, Gino also has guilt of his own: Nicky's wages pay for his medical schooling (and his internship will call him to Stanford for two years), while his efforts to have a life and a girlfriend (Curtis) of his own cause irreconcilable jealousy. Coming in the wake of Rain Man, Young's socially-concerned drama is unafraid of tackling complex emotional issues, but what few patronising and hackneyed insights it offers are waved like red flags. Unsophisticated.
