Not bad at all
6 May 2000 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I knew nothing about this movie when I sat down to watch it, but it ended up being a pleasant way to spend some time. The three leads all did a fine job, and their interaction produced many amusing moments. In fact, although it was rarely laugh-out-loud funny, the humor was more effective here than in most big-budget comedies. The more serious ending was fairly ordinary, yet it still managed to suit this film well. So, the next time you're in the mood for a film that isn't mainstream, you might want to give this a chance.
