Ok, It's odd but that's not always bad.
5 May 2002 | by (Florida--USA) – See all my reviews

Ok, I admit this movie was a bit strange. But thats not a bad thing. It gives everyone a break from their daily lives. I am more forgiving to movies because I accept limitations and understand movies don't always have to be "realistic". I have seen some comments on this IMDB message board saying that some of these movies are unrealistic. And the same people then turn around and say how much they admire Superman that he is a role model. Like that movie is realistic. Don't get me wrong I love Superman just as much as the next guy, but movies don't have to be realistic all the time. I mean if somebody made a movie about my life it would be boring as hell. I for one love the so called unrealistic movies.
