Funniest film in a long time! Sorta cult classic!
2 December 2005 | by bladedragonlordSee all my reviews

When was the last time you saw a funny film? I'm old school, Pink Panther, Monty Python and more British type obscure humour. I have to say in maybe the last possibly even 20 years there's been very few films that have made me laugh.

This is a good film people, I don't see why it rated so lowly. Yes, a couple of scenes are fairly gross, but the shock value is brilliantly done, something I can't say for American films usually. Sufficed to say this movie is not for children.

The characters are brilliant, the central love story boy and girl are small town USA naive; "Dig" (Orlando Jones), is mind blowingly crazy. The girls father is clever, maybe a little over done. Sally Field is terrifically awful, you can't fault her performance, but maybe they would have done better with an unknown, sorry to say she seems to drag the film down. Her eventual downfall isn't very satisfying, because you've already seen it. Something that seems to get missed these days is character development, but somehow in this film the characters are strong and you feel for the leads.

I think you have to be in a certain mood for this film and understand that you are looking at 2 very naive / simple people and the world around them is very judgmental of them in a bad way and if they just had each other that love would keep them happy.

A love story that will make you cry, some wacky characters and freak me out shock laughs, some weak points, and a surprisingly funny American film, which is a rare thing. Watch it!
