A very good, easy film to sit through
5 May 2007 | by (Serbia and Montenegro) – See all my reviews

This is a great little gem. Picked it up by accident on the TV, and had great fun throughout the movie. If you would analyze it by categories, it probably wouldn't score too high, but if you start with low expectations, this baby will pleasantly surprise you.

The pace doesn't drop at any point, every now and then there is a little joke that usually works, making you impatiently wait for more. If you would go all brainy on this, of course you could bring the vote down several notches, but the point is - this is a pleasant little film, the kind that is not too hard on a tired's man brain..

The movie as a whole works, shortly put.
