Well written, well acted, Good Film
30 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

This film came as a shock to me, i found this extremely funny and intelligent (not including bill.) Good performances by the cast and an excellent screenplay make this a must see film. Bill, the bumbling side-kick has his share of laughs, and Andy's father gets a lot of laughs with his sarcasm.

Haley Joel Osment, even though much younger still manages to steal the show with another excellent performance.

A class act all round, top notch film 10/10, and thats only because i can't go higher.
