Great movie
13 May 2006 | by AnAngryMobSee all my reviews

Now I just saw this movie on comedy central over this past week and I feel like as the user above me stated the romance element of this movie was kind of pointless and not crucial to the plot. Now on the other hand this movie from what I've read,seen and heard from other people this movie is supposed to show capitalism at work. How a group of communist can over come and persevere the hardships and problems, but the overview on this site about this movie failed to mention the guerrilla activist that comes into the copy shop and really shows the struggling shop owners how to empower themselves and really do what's needed!

I highly recommend this movie for anyone with a slight political sense of humor and to people that really understand or even support activism, communism or anarchy it shows one instance of the proletariat winning!
