Yup.
4 January 2003 | by (On that Alf pog) – See all my reviews

An oddly charming film from what I can remember. Not as intelligent or thought-provoking as I'm sure it wanted to be, it's still a fun caper with a narrative unique to the genre, and a message, albeit somewhat trite, that prevents it from becoming another "little guy vs. big corporation" movie.
