Mr. Rhett: What the hell were you doing up there? Do you think acting is just standing up on a stage, mumbling lines? Is THAT what you think, Mr. Arrogant Playwright? You're a BABY! You DISGUST me! You're VOMIT! You're COMPLETE and ABSOLUTE, VOMIT!
Charlie: So, in other words, you didn't like it?
Mr. Rhett: Get off the stage, VOMIT. I said, Get Off The Stage! You're hopeless. You're all hopeless...

Not exactly my kind of movie, but AWESOME
13 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the best comedy-drama movies I've seen. Reiser is the best. I admit that. The one thing I can be sure of... Martin Mull is the best too. This will sound positive, but to me it's negative. Martin Mull has the best acting skills that I don't like him. I mean, How The Wesr Was Fun... he played a retarded character. But I love him.

Give a holler now!! This movie was right before How The West Was Fun.

I hate to break it to you, MacIntyre. There may be too many Ding-A-Lings in the script, but it's what ties in with the point of the movie. You have to give the movie a chance. I saw from beginning to the end today and I thought it was quite fascinating. What you said, though, seems true. This movie showed some product plugs.

The movie is alright. The acting is awesome. The conflict is amazing. The setting fits in just right. The theme... well, I never really caught the theme. I wonder what my English teacher would say about this movie. I'll ask him later. This movie is top notch and not a bit boring or pathetic. I just hope Mr. Write wasn't in Welsh when MacIntyre saw it. -chuckles-
