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 »

Dreary, boring and pointless
11 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

What a waste of time. Why are the meaningless blatherings of a spoilt middle class brat supposed to be funny? I had a hard time keeping my eyes open. There was very little to hold the attention. The central characters are a void with nothing interesting to say or do. Enid's so called rebelliousness against corporate capitalism is nothing more than a five year old's temper tantrum.
