I was smiling a lot during the movie...
13 March 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I was smiling a lot during the movie but there was no roaring laughter.

The funniest part was his parents. The perfect couple decent, friendly and his loving mom puts a corpse in the fridge if he wants a snack. A nice teenage comedy with some unexpected twists. I bought the film as a used laserdisc for $5 and I think that's worth it.
