Unlike the last person to comment, who found this film unfunny and less than memorable, I submit an opinion completely opposite to that. The one-liners and sarcasm throughout this movie are both extremely funny AND extremely memorable. 20 years later, the jokes still hold up, and people of all ages still quote it in everyday conversation. Even though I've seen it a hundred times, I still laugh out loud every time. Every actor is superb in his/her role, and the comic timing is brilliant. Plus, this is one of those movies with tons of nuances and silly little things that you have to watch dozens of times to catch.
Needless to say, this movie comes highly recommended.
