MUCH better than *a lot* of recent turds I've seen...
22 July 2004 | by (Honolulu, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

Are you looking for 'Ace Ventura' - then watch that. Looking for 'The Godfather' - then watch that. This is a great gem of a small budget film.

The laughs are genuine and the love story, which is actually the main theme, plays well with all these character actors. As always - you can count on Wallace Shawn to add his own humble humor to his role as the downtrodden tax accountant.

I'm not surprised at some of the negative comments since everyone has an opinion, some of which will naturally be different from your own. But don't let them turn you away from this fun-filled action/romance story. Seriously, if you like films like "The Cutting Edge", "Forget Paris" or "French Kiss" --- this is a definite must see. :)
