totally worthwhile
11 February 2009 | by (los angeles) – See all my reviews

Great film, hilariously acted, tom Arnold at his best. It does a lot of emotion and humor in simple situations that are truly funny and tugs at the romantic in me. It's a date movie and a comedy in one and a lot of subtle and great film-making in it. The main character (and this film) have a lot of heart. There's a great flow about it and the city itself is a great character, too. As someone who loves 24, and lives in LA, I thought this really captures the sense of place and the ridiculousness of being afraid of the news. It has a surprise ending that really got me thinking. The main point shows us something funny in terrorism and the world of paranoia. I laughed out loud. rent it.
