A real surprise. I have seen this movie at the video store and passed it by before- big mistake.

On HBO at 4 am the other morning, I stumbled on it again. A very sweet movie that pokes fun but doesn't condescend. Its tough to have your main characeters be stupid, work from motivations extending from their character and disposition and not seem cloying. This pulls it off. Handles friendship between the two main characters very well too.

Highly recommend.
