I nervously put my newly acquired DVD into the machine and sat down with my housemate who had never seen the film. Remember back during the Watergate hearings and witnesses with talk about limited or full hangouts? Well, this is a full hangout. No one goes away without being insulted.

Housemate ended by remarking 'now this is a funny movie.'
