My All Time Favorite Movie
20 January 2003 | by Roxanne44444See all my reviews

Though exaggerated in some instances for dramatic effect, this film encompasses many of the phenomena that middle class Americans experience through out their life cycle. It is somewhat fantastic, however, the basic reality is inescapable.

I found the assorted vignettes drove my emotions across the continuum from utter hilarity to absolute despair. No other movie has given me such an emotional roller coaster ride.

This movie is truly a sleeper and it's a shame that more people have not had the pleasure of experiencing it.
