this movie rocks the house
7 June 2001 | by jrkerrbombSee all my reviews

This sweetly innocent yet infectious movie diagnoses the malaise of an interdependently skilled society and prescribes a dose of premeditated spontaneity as nepenthe. The movie will change you. The javelin throwing Oly and her bumbling obsessed coaches will remind any viewer of their own fascinations with the unattainable love paradigms that others present to us. Rock on Mr. Byington! We salute you.
