great dialogue driven movie of a man and women in New York doing nothing
22 September 1998 | by (florida) – See all my reviews

This movie has great pace. The dialogue is laid back in contrast to the incidents that befall the characters. This movie celebrates the pure enjoyment at seeing frustrating situations happening to others. Similiar to "The Daytrippers" and "The Out-of-Towners".
