Creative, Humorous, and Refreshing Flick
25 October 1998 | by whitmuleSee all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I became quickly attached to the characters who were truly hilarious. This film was put together with intelligence and creative enthusiasm. One gets the feeling that everyone involved in making this film had a great time doing it.
