One of the funniest, clever movies I have ever seen...
11 January 1999 | by (Phoenix, Az) – See all my reviews

I happened to see this film on impulse, and now I own it and have seen it many times over. The humor is subtle and intelligent and the performances are very genuine. If you have not seen this film, you are missing out on a great one. Pay attention to the dialogue though, or you might miss some of the laughs.
