Hilarious and Brilliant!
17 April 2000 | by (Miami Beach, Florida) – See all my reviews

What an unexpected gem! This film is hilarious! It falls in that very rare "laughter hangover" category ... films that make you laugh so much that you wake up the next morning with an aching gut.

Terrific cast! Tremendous performances!

The cinematography and blocking are also fantastic. A variety of unique visual techniques are ingeniously employed, serving to underscore dramatic tensions and to heighten comedic effect.

Brilliant!
