Very Funny !!!
6 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on a DVD at the doctor's office while waiting for my husband to have some tests. I am afraid that I disturbed the decorum of the place with my frequent outbursts of laughter. They didn't quite ask me to leave, but I did get a lot of disapproving looks. The comedic action is enhanced by a wonderful plot with plenty of twists and turns; also, great characters which are brought to life by the quality acting that is seen throughout. The writing and directing are superb. I particularly enjoyed small bits of action in the background. They are real gems, so keep your eyes open for them. When the movie is released for general viewing, be sure to see it. Just one caution, don't watch it in a place where you are not comfortable with laughing out loud.
