Fun film to watch
9 January 1999 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I like this film. The acting is ok, the story is ok, it's fun to watch.

I found the soundtrack stuck in my head for years and years after I watched this film, sometimes I'll be doing something and BAM a song from the film will pop into my head. Weird :)

Michael Keaton is great in it, in fact this is one of his better films I believe.

See it, you'll either love it or hate it. I like it, and have watched it numerous times.
