I would seem to be in the minority of user commenters -- I had this film from Netflix and liked it so much that I've subsequently bought it for my DVD library. Unlike other people who commented, I've known people who talk like these characters and, despite the seriousness and depression experienced by some of the cast I for one (and only one, apparently) find much that is amusing in the film. The director (and author) and his cast are to be commended. I love this film. I'm not a cinema scholar but, unlike many independent films, the technical aspects are also very good. One does not come away with the impression that it was done on a minimal budget. Excellent sound, editing, scoring and everything else. Bouquets all round!
