Pleasantly Surprised
18 April 2003 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

Although I had read a synopsis of the movie before seeing it, I had completely forgotten by the time I entered the theater. I only remember that the movie seemed interesting. The only reason I got an opportunity to see this movie is because a local theater was hosting its first annual indie film series. This was the first movie to be shown, and the fact that John Cusack was involved also intrigued me. The first several minutes of the movie are overwhelmingly intense. It surprised me that those few shots could have the impact that it did. Despite the rough language, there were a few moments where I was moved to tears. There were also some very funny moments, spurred by very realistic dialogue of humorous situations and their reactions. It is a very memorable movie, with very memorable characters. Tucker will always be my favorite. :)
