Nice movie.
27 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie is nice, it is funny, ironic and interesting.

It's nice to watch to remember the old days. Don't expect too much from this movie.

Funny thing is that this movie can have some relevance to today.

Watch it if you have nothing better to do.
