i thought movie was great
2 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i thought the movie was great. it had lots of humor. maybe it is the fact that i am from Californian that i thought it was so good. i could see how a non-Californian would not get all of the jokes. however, i think all people should see it. plus the stereotypes where funny. all in all i thought that it was a great film from an art standpoint. i would have to say that the funniest part of the movie was when they let the Getty center burn, because it was a "an obscure building with B material art." now if you have been to the Getty i think that you can agree that it was "B" material art. so i think you should get your hands on a copy and watch it it is a great film.
