I really enjoyed this movie.
2 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was excellent. The movie is funny pretty much from beginning to end.

I particularly liked the relationship between the main character and his parents.

The previous poster said that it could be slow at times, and I see what he means, but I didn't find it to be a problem at all.

Also, one of the characters in the movie is played by "Mo" from the old Guts show on Nickelodeon, which I found to be pretty cool. :)

I think if Suicide had a little bit more exposure it could build up a significant fan base.

The movie is on Netflix. You won't regret picking it up.
