Great Comedy Suffers Under Bad Directing
27 November 2001 | by g0b0See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by this comedy. It was well written; in fact much of the dialogue reminded me of Michael Frayn (Noises Off!). There was potential for that rapid-fire repartee going back and forth between two or more characters. Also, the actors were well cast and terrific. I'd say that actors of this. caliber were either working for scale wages or else, the lion's share of the budget went to on-screen talent. The place where this film suffered a crushing blow was the direction. It was written and directed by Tracy Alexson. I think Tracy has a brighter future in writing than in direction. Entire scenes seemed to sag under a lack of direction. If you watch, don't expect a neat and tight comedy. Instead, expect some good dialogue, good acting and a comedy that misses its potential.
