Very enjoyable
30 September 2000 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

The film had a bit of a slow start to it but gathered a bit more momentum as it progressed. The storyline seemed a bit disjointed at times. That's what was most disappointing about the film, after seeing the storyline slowly develop the film had an abrupt end. On the other hand it is a film that has a lot of extremely funny moments in it especially one scene in particular. This redeemed the film for me. All said and done this film is much better than a lot of big budget Hollywood fare that hits the cinemas. The acting was very good with great performances from all the actors involved. It is well worth a look.
