Quotes

[Tom is on the phone speaking to who he believes is Curt, but he's really speaking to Brad]
Tom Bennett: Listen, Curt, I'm not saying competition is a bad thing, OK. I mean, certainly it's got its good points. I mean you don't want to turn out like 'Sadly I'm Bradley' or anything.
Brad: Sadly, I'm Bradley.
Tom Bennett: Yeah, it's pretty funny, huh?
Brad: Sadly, I *am* Bradley.

Why would you NOT watch this?
14 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Every time I see this on TV, I can't stop watching. Tom is dillusional and keeps seeing a super hero and occasionally a couple of business men (who I think represent the 'super villains'). In order to get this you'll have to listen to what he says at the first of the movie. You may have to pay close attention to most of it, but it's worth it. The main thing is that the main characters can't go outside because of the bet, and they're all starting to freak out in their own way, while doing their own thing. It takes place during one noon-hour, and includes a very disgruntled employee and a very emotionally unstable flower deliverer. The editing is pretty weird, it reminds me of The Ninth Gate. This is probably due to the way it was filmed, but if it doesn't bother you then you'll enjoy this film. It has some drugs, occasional sex (sorry, no nude), and a lot of laughs. Definitely one of the best movies I've ever seen.
