Very funny movie, leaves you with a good feeling...
15 August 1999 | by (Malibu, California) – See all my reviews

One movie you should really check out, I found it at Blockbuster and enjoyed every minute. It is very light hearted and takes some funny punches at big corporate America (like Kinkos and Starbucks). Great cast and cute sets
