Under-rated movie
22 February 2000 | by (Melbourne,Australia) – See all my reviews

Dustin H is at his brilliant best. Listen carefully to his closing speech to his son(delivered with passion in the zoo). Words of wisdom about the state of the human zoo we live in. The movie has humour, pathos and some great lines. One of my favourites.
