Original and hysterical history.
18 December 2002 | by mscott81See all my reviews

I disagree with mister Atwood, the movie was blackly funny and I am sure close to someone's home. One of the few things Clinton did well (or at least in his Presidency) was uncover government secrets and reveal them. This was just ahead of its time.

Harry G and Elliot scene where they trying to carry on a conversation while being tested is very funny as well as other scenes.
