I had a chance to see a sneak of this film and I found it very funny and quirky. Harland Williams is hilarious in this movie playing the sidekick. His deadpan looks are classic and plays a "loser" to perfection. Lauren Graham, as always, is funny, lovable and adorable as the girl next door. I particularly enjoyed the soundtrack which had a very eclectic mix of new and old school tunes ranging from The Nails, "88 Lines About 44 Women" to Badly Drawn Boy's, "The Shinning." Many of the actors, although some only appearing for one scene were great, especially Debra Jo Rupp (That 70's Show) who plays the leads's Mother. She is the most talented of the group here and portrays the dysfunctional mom so matter-of-fact, it's sad and funny. Check this little gem out.
