I always love to be able to use the term "hidden gem" in my reviews, since those are the kind of movies I seek out most, and this Steve Martin vehicle totally qualifies.
The plot is original. The ending is surprising. Steve Martin plays his character perfectly. I don't dislike Steve Martin, but this is the most I've ever liked him in a movie, since he usually can't seem to stop his "acting" from going too far over-the-top.
I don't want to give anything about this unique film away, so I'll only say that this is simply a terrific mildly-black comedy, and I confidently rate it a solid ten.
