Subtle and clever
18 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've always been a fan of subtle, often unrecognized humor. You have to be alert to catch some of the funny bits in this movie. I.E., some of the comments made by the French burglar. Jeff Goldblum plays the perfect "Woody Allenesque" neurotic. The movie has that low budget Indy vibe that I actually find refreshing. The film that was used was not exactly crisp nor was the lighting the greatest either. When you can get Jeff Goldblum and Mimi Rodgers, not exactly neophytes I might add, to act in this corny comedy; I think this director has a piece of work to be proud of. It's not "Meet the Parents" caliper, although that movie also has a lot of subtleties that could be missed if you've got a lot on your mind at the time you watch it.
