User Reviews

The cast makes this an enjoyable film.
15 September 1998 | by Bill-175See all my reviews

I am a big Parker Posey fan (Waiting for Guffman, Party Girl, House of Yes and other indie films), and the addition of Hope Davis (Next Stop Wonderland) and other cast members made this film very watchable. The storyline itself is rather forgettable.
