A funny film that is in the tradition of Something About Mary
3 August 1999 | by baumerSee all my reviews

Okay, straight up, I love this film. I caught this precious gem on viewers choice one day when I was bored and nothing to do. I hadn't heard anything about it so I just sat down and watched a film that I knew nothing about. All I knew was that Parker was in it and I liked her in LA Story. I didn't really even know who Ben Stiller was back then. But what I got was one hell of a funny film. Some of the humour in here is so over the top that you applaud it for its sheer audacity. Two of my favourite scenes are when Shaeffer is jogging in the park and when he sits down to finally have a meaningful chat with the man in the wheel chair. Great stuff.

The humour in here is fast and frenzied and it doesn't really let up. And seeing as this film is written, directed and starring Eric Shaeffer, that can all be attributed to him. He is not really well known and obviously this film was never really given a chance by anyone in the business and so it remains a hidden masterpiece of comedy. It's too bad that someone like Ben Stiller couldn't get him some sort of a role in a film and utilize his new found fame after Mary, because Shaeffer is a real talent. He has so much raw energy in here and it really should be seen. This film is what comedy is all about and if you do like "Mary" then I think you'll get a kick out of "Lucy". A great film, and funnier than a lot of what is out there today.
