Goofs

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 »

This was a super cool film.
5 January 2005 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I bought this film new for $2.98 because I had to spend money somehow...I thought it was going to be a poor, lame and dreary pain.

From the opening scene to the very end, I really enjoyed this.

The comedy timing was awesome and the cast was well chosen.

This is a very simple but funny story which is a real treat.

Not overly long on time, it makes up for in humor, and not sick or foul mouthed grade four humor...but natural laughter.

This tops anything with Jim Carrey or any of the American Pie movies or anything with Eddie Murphy, simply because it doesn't try to outdo itself.

It flowed very nice and the timing of it all matched up even though there was 1 flaw...and that was concerning a minor oversight.

For a movie made with a very small budget in terms of movie making, this comes to the top as far as I'm concerned.

And for Rachel Cook...yeah....oh baby...she is sweet in her natural beauty and wearing her super-hero getup in here is definitely not going to make my eyes sore...

Clever, sharp, witty and just awesome.

I'm very happy that I picked it up.
