A very funny comedy
25 February 2009 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

It's been a very long time since I've seen a real comedy...

This is written great...and the thing is funny...in such a pathetic way.

I love all the references to movies - most of all the Flashdance scene.

Yes, sad but true - that so much of Hollywood is like this and this movie just pays tribute to the real deal - without all the glamour.

It's great to see Sam McMurray doing some rude and raunchy comments and the posters of the movies were done really well. They looked really cool.

All the little things were saw to here - and it made a good production great.
