delightful
1 September 2003 | by rowe-4See all my reviews

I found the film delightfully funny. I fell in love with Goldblum's style and felt that other roles (e.g. the Fly, the horrible Jurassic Park and the farcical Independence day, and one really bad film whose name I don't recall) never quite matched this one for allowing him to showcase his humor. (the fact that he could even give a whisper of that style to the Fly--a movie tragic enough to provide a difficult medium for any humor--is much to his credit as a naturally funny person). I highly recommend it.
