The comedy is great, the romance is unnecessary. Overall a very funny movie.
25 March 2000 | by apieper-2See all my reviews

This movie was very funny, and probably had the best joke-to-dollar ratio of any movie I've seen. That is, given the fact that 2/3 of the movie takes place within the copy shop, they do a lot with it. I personally felt that the romantic element didn't add much to the movie, and that's the movie's one major drawback. Although the actors are all no-names, the actors were very good, and fit the parts well.
