Let me begin by saying I am a HUGE Parker Posey fan. I absolutely love her in just about everything she's done. And it really is thanks to her excellent performance in this movie that I gave it as many stars as I did. Unfortunately, despite Parker's best amazing efforts, the movie is very boring. It's like it wants to take off and go somewhere....and Parker is workin it like nobody's business....but it just continually flatlines. Eric Mabius tries his best too (such a cutie) and a pretty good actor. But as the old saying goes, you just can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, and this film is a squealing sow. If you want to enjoy Parker in her full glory, check out some of her other fun flicks, like Best in Show, House of Yes, or Adam and Steve. But do yourself a favor and leave this particular movie on the shelf.
