Not high art, not even exceptionally innovative, but a thoroughly enjoyable movie. Funny, fresh, intelligent - there are still people out there who don't need millions of dollars to hide that they're out of ideas.
When you compare this to your average Hollywood action flick, you're comparing a homemade meal with a big mac.
