1 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can remember being in awe when I first saw this movie in the theatre. Nothing I'd seen since Police Academy compared. Most of the characters in this movie are flawed to some degree, which makes them even more real. It's amazing to me that this movie received such poor reviews. I saw it and loved it. The question remains, "Yeah, but is it funny?" It's very much a dark comedy. It's not "touchy feely" in any sense. That being said, you still get your classic moments. What makes this movie work so well for me is how close it is to reality for a lot of people. There seems to be an abundance of people who clearly seem disappointed by life. Aside from that, this is a fairly simple, yet entertaining movie. Does it break any new ground? Certainly not. But how many movies do?
