Quotes

Wesley Benfield: Have I met you before?
Elaine Rigsbee: I seriously doubt it.
Wesley Benfield: Well, cos you look just like this lady always comes down to the RC, asks me all sorts of questions. Always leaves me feeling like somebody's just grabbed my gonads, gently swung 'em out, looked all 'round behind 'em.
[Elaine splutters and nearly chokes on her lunch]
Alora: What are gonads?
Finner: Don't ask!

Brilliant

Definately one of the best films I've seen all year with excellent performances all round. How this went straight to video in the UK is unbelievable. This certainly proves that Jonathan Taylor Thomas is not just a teen idol and has the ability to perform well in a challenging role. 10/10
