From some of the other comments (especially the one complaining about the Southern accents), it's clear that people are judging this film at face value. This movie is not meant to be realistic! It's a whimsical, highly stylized fable, right in line with director Jon Amiel's best work -- and it's a delight from start to finish.

Hilarious, smart, sexy, surprising -- in other words, not your typical Hollywood comedy. Give it a chance!
