Nice and nutty
13 October 2000 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

There's an off-beat whacky quality to this movie and characters you can - but ought not to - feel superior to. The "girlfriends" dance has classic qualities written all over it. and the surprise cameo by John Sayles is a wonderful bonus.
