I caught this movie on cable one night and about laughed my head off. Needless to say, it's not very well-known and I'm surprised it doesn't have a large cult base--how can this be!?! I don't know anyone who's seen it, besides the friends I've recommended it to. Great quotes, simple unpretentious non-fluffy script, funny take on how far jealousy can get you (or not). Carlos Jacott and John Lehr are ridiculously hilarious. "It's fun just to follow people sometimes. Anyone." I've always loved Chris Eigeman's matter-of-fact, dry tone. Eric Stoltz and Annabella Sciorra have great chemistry and play a persuading couple. It's not your run-of-the-mill Hollywood movie, but it's quite clever. Go rent it if you can find it. Heck, buy it if you can find it.
