great.
21 December 2000 | by (Iowa) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the oddest movies that I ever laughed hysterically at. I saw it at the Toronto Film Festival where half of the people laughed at everything like me, and the other half walked out. If you love insane humor, check it out. That is if it ever gets a distribution contract, which it definitely should. If it does ever come to a rental house near you, instant cult classic status.
