A publishing executive is visited and bitten by a woman and starts exhibiting erratic behavior. He pushes his secretary to extremes as he tries to come to terms with his delusions.

"I never misfiled anything! Not once. Not one time"!
27 August 2014 | by crgilbert7See all my reviews

What an underrated gem! If you are a fan of Nicolas Cage, this is a must see. Without him, this movie would be awful. Without Nic's tour de force performance this would be a movie you would turn off after the first five minutes of watching it. His performance makes you really wonder how his career would have turned out if he continued to do comedies like this and Raising Arizona. I for one think his career would have been just as successful, if not more. He is absolutely hilarious; every line makes you laugh hysterically. If I had to give this film a letter grade.. Hmm, let me think.. A? B? C? D? E? F? G? H? I? J? K…? Okay, you get the point. (A+ Comedy)
