Crazy Credits

After all the credits roll, there's another take of the scene where Seymour (Steve Buscemi) gets attacked by Doug in the minimart. Only this time, Buscemi's characer easily wins the fight, choking Doug with his own weapon, and stomps out triumphantly. He finishes with a bunch of Mr. Pink type dialogue. See more »

If there ever was a perfectly made movie, this would be it.

Why do I like this movie so much? I guess there's something about Enid's character that I find unique, humorous, and fresh. But most importantly, what I found was a similarity between me and her in the way she handles every day life. Basically, I loved this movie because I felt a connection with Enid's personality. The script and acting helped, of course. But I think it goes back to Enid, and I really believe that people who do like this movie will probably say that the best thing about this movie is Enid, and how this character is so great. Obviously the humor in the movie isn't for everyone. They "don't get it", and it's quite understandable. Still, for those who do get it, you're in for a treat.

Why can't I meet a girl like Enid? :)
