A simple but great story about interesting people with alcoholic problems
15 August 2005 | by (Belgrade) – See all my reviews

My comment may be a little subjective as I am a Rosanna's fun. But Hogan and Reinhold were great also (which I cannot tell for their other movies).

Yes, this is a movie about alcoholism, but it also can be watched without searching for some point in it. It's very relaxing, makes you fond of main characters, and you get the wish to go to them back and back again. It means, this is kind of movie that you can watch over and over again without getting bored.

Maybe the best recommendation is that this kind of mix of emotions, people's behaviors and interesting episodes in a movie is something that you don't see very often which is appreciated in today's movies.
