Enjoyable
27 October 2003 | by (Eureka, California) – See all my reviews

I had no preconceived idea about this movie. I watched this movie and I was engaged from start to finish. I appreciated the smart dialogue and the fresh spin director David Semel put on what would normally be tired old stereotypes. I was so delighted with this film I logged on to IMDB to read more about it. I was surprised by the few unfair and harsh user comments, of course there are always a few that see the glass half empty, but for the most, the majority found this film as entertaining as I did.
