Enjoyable and Quirky Comedy
24 February 1999 | by (White Heath, IL) – See all my reviews

This is one of those comedies, that while it is predictable, is still a joy to watch again and again. Ever since her debut in "The Man in the Moon" I have loved Reese Witherspoon. Her ability and charm come through just as bright as ever in this little known comedy. "Overnight Delivery" is basically a rehash of the typical "Keystone Cop" physical comedy style that was overdone in the late eighties and early nineties. But, it possesses in its actors quirks that are not seen in other movies of the same genre. I won't say that you should run out and rent this movie tonight, but if it comes on cable, or if you need a good laugh, pop a bag of popcorn and assume the couch potato posture.
