Janeane at her best!
28 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

This film has a wonderful blend of comedians inside, Janeane Garafalo, Margret Cho and Bobcat Golthwait. The mystery here is, this isn't REALLY a comedy. It is a fairly serious tale of a woman meeting a man for the first time. The trouble is the woman (Garafalo) is nuts. She takes him on a wild ride over the course of the evening turning him from hating her to loving her. In the end, no happy ending here. But a poignent look at why we say and do the things we do.
