I was delighted by this movie and recommend it very highly - it is funny, charming, clever and disarming - I rented it as part of my Vincent- D'Onofrio-film-series (I'm-a-stay-at-home-mom-during-the-day-isn't-he-a- clever-and-yet-also-super-sexy-he-man) and found it surprisingly funny and touching. Each of the performances was worth viewing (although most were really lovely and brilliant and touching) and the story was unexpectedly resonant. Woof.I love movies with odd characters that are so quirky they could only be real and I love seeing big-money actors (Kudrow, D'Onofrio, Azario) in well crafted smaller films that are very well made. Most days I feel like barking all the time too. I'd love to know where I could buy a copy - I know so many of my chick pals would enjoy it - and us fans of VDO get a very satisfying slab of this very gifted and clever actor's work. Woof, woof. Arf.
