1 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Delirious was excellent! I had the opportunity to catch the last showing at the Sundance Film Festival. The show was completely captivating. The storyline was very entertaining and the cast was completely lovable. Alison Lohman was brilliant. I highly recommend this movie if you enjoy character based comedies or if you have ever had an obsession. Character development is what makes this film so great. Tom DiCillo does an incredible job of thrusting you into these character's lives. Opinions of the characters change periodically throughout the show as you get to know them. When the plot begins to unfold, the story seems to be very predictable. However, you will be pleasantly surprised with a handful of unexpected circumstances. This film is easily one of the most entertaining at Sundance this year. I can't wait to add it to my personal collection.
