As Sheila enters the bank with Mark on Saturday, you see the bank's hours posted on the door as Mon-Thu 8:00-4:00, Fri 8:00-5:00, with no mention of Saturday, so presumably the bank not open on Saturdays, however key plot points take place on Saturday with the bank open. See more »
It's too bad this isn't more recognized. It's quite funny, and there are golden moments herein. This has plenty of characters... some might say too many, though I would say that a fitting amount of time is spent on them. They are all strange types, and in general this has a lot of that vibe, and, again, there are those who will argue that it goes overboard. The acting is pretty solid, Costanzo is excellent. It may not be the most demanding as far as performances go. The plot is well-written, and certainly never lost my interest. The pacing is fairly even. This has a couple of impeccable surprises. The music is cool. The majority of the jokes and gags work, however, it can cause a loud and reverberating crash when the others fall flat. The DVD of this that I have... R2, if that makes any difference... holds no features. There is rather little language, but it's as strong as it comes. There is no violence, if a bit of the physical comedy can come off as disturbing. Sex goes no further than minor dialog and eye-candy. I recommend this to any fan of anyone involved in creating it. Just be sure that you do not let yourself be exposed to any quirk for a while before watching this, or you may OD on it. 6/10
