Trivia

The title comes from a William Goldman quote from his book "Adventures in the Screen Trade", where he says that "the single most important fact, perhaps, of the entire movie industry" is that 'nobody knows anything'. If there is a Roman numeral I to this book, that's it.... Not one person in the entire motion picture field knows for a certainty what's going to work. Every time out it's a guess and, if you're lucky, an educated one." See more »

Nice try but ....
22 December 2004 | by lommel78See all my reviews

An American trying to make an alternative comedy with more sophisticated humor. ... and that's where it went wrong. A fine idea to do something different with comedy ended up in a nightmare. Can't blame him for trying something fresh though.

Looks like the director hit the ball totally wrong here so I think he'd better stick to brainless Hollywood comedy. It's even better to have some lame old jokes than.

Watched the movie with six people who love love all kinds of comedy from Hollywood to British comedy, from satire to black comedy. This film

But after 50 min we just stopped watching in order not to lose our good mood.

.... too bad
