cheeky little movie
26 June 2006 | by (Atwater, USA) – See all my reviews

This is subtle and yet very down home. Unusual in a movie where a Big city person drops in on a small town, and invokes positive changes, that people like.

Some of the gags Lloyd uses are manipulating people in an esoteric fashion to accomplish comfort or expidite a conversation, and without provoking the person he's using. In the last 5 decades that would have gotten him Hurt in most major American cities where manipulation is common and resistance can be violent.

Just shows how open spaces ellicit calm reactions in people. Fun situations and a fun movie.
