Fun to watch
1 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

Now this is about as funny a movie as anyone like that can get. Do not ever mind the detractors. This here is real fun to watch. Not a "documentary" like some blame. Nor pretentious like others pretended to believe. It is a really fun movie to watch..I find no better way nor phrase to express it.

Every aspect of the film, be it tragic incidents, comic relief or just plain student-life-reality, has got such a kinetic energy to it that you never get bored. Even when subject matter delves into territory of cliché, movie's execution is so bloody brilliant that you somehow feel brazenly energetic. A movie for the young of heart.
