Even better the second time...
10 October 2000 | by (Bethesda, Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was witty, clever and fun. It was even better the second time. Every time I see it, I notice something new.

It is a true social commentary on the "trend-sucking leeches" of New York City in the 1990's.
