I saw this film as part of a focus group in Riverside, CA, before any other American release. I loved it. Witty, amusing and fun. It was wonderful. A study of relationships and the troubles we all seem to have, plus a hilarious look at all the Touchy Feely New Age Mumbo Jumbo nonsense that was so prevalent in the 90's.
Sadly, the focus group was poorly chosen and almost 1/3 of the people in the audience left after the first "guy with guy" scene. If you are not disturbed by sexuality, you should be very well entertained. This mass exodus should be interpreted as saying anything about the film, but about the number of narrow minds in Riverside.
I only hope that it will be released on video in the USA...
