Funniest movie ever!
20 May 2002 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

It's such a subtle movie that at first you're not sure if you should laugh... this movie is based on real people who did the talkshow circuit in the early 80s-- her from prison, him in person. Kevin Kline is brilliant as Joey Boca and Tracey Ullman is hilarious as his oblivious and then vengeful bride. So, if you feel like laughing, you should. Don't let this one pass!
