funny every time
9 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The essence of a great film is that it makes us laugh each time we watch it and this film certainly fits this criteria .

Whoopie Goldberg's star quality shines through as she carries scenes along mainly by herself as she supposedly communicates with an unseen man-in- trouble .

The film has some superbly memorable lines and just fulfils our deepest wishes that one day we will be whisked into a glamorous world of intrigue and espionage.

The end scene in the restaurant shows Whoopie's versatility and has us in tears for her.

She does not need swearing though to carry her talents . She can act with her face as well as her script . The rest of the cast perform admirably and this is one to watch time and time again .
