A movie with many twists....in the vein of The Spanish Prisoner
If you are expecting a typical Steve Martin comedy, then don't see this movie. However, if you are looking for a dark comedy with many twists and turns, and with great acting, then this movie is for you. I liken it to The Spanish Prisoner, another fantastic Steve Martin movie that contained many unexpected plot twists. I give this a 10.
