Bad movie with not so bad actor...
14 July 2003 | by Tokyo_ghostSee all my reviews

Many people recommended me to see this movie, and I still don't understand why! I was told that it was not a masterpiece but that it was still an entertaining comedy, so I sat down in front of my TV with that in mind.

I think I must have laughed out loud twice during the whole movie, which is a bad thing for a comedy. I'll simply put it this way: the story and the concept of a single actor doing the four main roles were very interesting, and the main actor was pretty good, but the situations in which the characters had to go through were, for the most, not funny nor original. Some things were also very predictable and some scenes just lasted too long for what they had to show.
