Excellent Funny Film that doesn't insult your intelligence
31 August 1999 | by (Seattle Washington USA) – See all my reviews

I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised, and then some. I see a fairly large number of films, and I saw this film as a preview in Seattle. My wife and I couldn't stop laughing. I'm the kind of person who found "Something about Mary" to be funny but too silly to recommend because it insulted my intelligence. This movie was over-the-top funny without being insulting. Every character behaves as a normal person would. The writing was very good, the direction was well-paced and overall pace was better than you'd expect for this genre. All in all, I'd say that this film was an Excellent film for the genre. If you like funny couples films, GO SEE THIS FILM.
