Low-key hilarious.
10 January 2003 | by (los angeles, usa) – See all my reviews

If you like low-key humor and a writer/director and actors totally getting what they're doing, you'll love this movie. My only complaint is that it could have been longer and explored some more aspects of the main characters, but other that that, this is a gem.
