Quotes

Beverly Franco: Listen, about the script... I see it as a love story between Hank and Frank.
Buck O'Brien: You do?
Beverly Franco: Yeah. Don't you? It's like a homoerotic misogynistic love story.
Buck O'Brien: Oh. Well, it is what it is. I don't know. I mean, I wanted to write something like... like the kind of things me and my friend used to do.

Comedy?!
11 March 2001 | by jdowlingSee all my reviews

We saw this movie because we heard great critic reviews. It certainly was interesting and different; enjoyable to my artistic senses. But funny? No! I don't know how they can call this a comedy. I call it a drama. If folks are laughing, they're laughing at mental and/or emotional illness in a somewhat realistic plot - what's funny about that?!
