Invite ya best pal around & order Pizza, this one is well worth seeing!
10 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

So Funny you need a friend with you to laugh with...yet sincere! This film is thrilling, exciting, clever, and educational & did I mention funny... truly an excellent ride! I found myself moved towards each of the characters, especially Sean Penn, which was an eye opener for me, as I am not much of a fan... yet he's character was a softer, deeper innocence! Demi more plays the buxom strong woman as usual, not that I am faulting her, when it comes to Demi I am a concrete fan, also a great fan of Robert Deniro, who also plays a strong survival character! They all work well together to bring us an education of it's projected time, & a good honest chuckle!
