INSPIRED!
10 October 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

A few of my friends use this film to test compatibility of potential mates. I knew I had to ditch my girlfriend when she didn't laugh. Not once, not ONE TIME! I am stunned that people are voting this film down. I'm extremely picky and rarely go to movies because I find most to be 'cheapy' but this is an INSPIRED piece of work by everyone from Nicolas Cage (his BEST performance - even better than "Leaving Las Vegas") to the director, ALL the actors and to the especially insane writer Joseph Minion of "After Hours" fame and one or two unproduced scripts I found funny if not disturbingly so. THIS IS A MUST SEE!! "Peter, right?" Yes! Peter! Right! "How are you?" How AM I?* "You know...A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z! That's all you have to DO!"
