Loved it
11 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

I was hooked from the beginning and it kept me laughing until the end. The characters are well developed and support well the eccentric situational humour surrounding the main character and the actions he sinks to. The end wasn't very satisfying for me but I'm used to endings not living up to the great movie it concludes. The movie would have been much better if he had coped with those feelings instead of going with that ending.

I really enjoyed this movie, but I do have to suggest one thing to those who don't like it: LIGHTEN UP! It's just a movie, it's not supposed to be overly realistic. I wasn't disappointed at all.
