This movie doesn't depend on special effects, or high profile stars (no offense)to grab you and bring you inside the story. It actually has a plot! Something which is sadly missing in some of the big, flashy, "premise" movies today. The dialogue is witty and down to earth. It has a smatterring of the great tongue in cheek comments you wish you could use as a retort in real life. Burns constructs some great cut-aways from one conversation to another. This is a great movie that gets better every time you watch it. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't require a car crash, gun fire, or an explosion every few minutes to hold their attention. Some of the subject matter limits the audience to adults, but send the kids to grandma's house and enjoy this one.
