Flat and nary a laugh!
11 July 2000 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

What happens when you stuff a film to the gills with recognizable character actors and forget about the script entirely...you get THE DEFINITE MAYBE. If you look at the box it's all about the film makers and nothing about the story, that's because there isn't one. Bob Balaban does a great job, as he always does, but everything else is completely forgettable. This is a great example of why people don't like independent film. Watch beware!
