Quotes

Dan: [reading from the pamphlet Dr. Paige handed him] Mas--mastering masturbation?
Dr. Emily Paige: Oh, it's a wonderful guide. Techniques, fantasy games, lubricants, all in historical context. Did you know that Edison was an avid masturbator? It's where he got his best ideas.
Dan: No, Edison stole his best ideas.
Dr. Emily Paige: Whatever. Maybe it was Einstein.

Good Natured Silliness

Oh c'mon. What were you expecting? Gone with the wind? Some of my favorite stars. Some cast against type (James Spader, Jay Mohr, Lara Flynn Boyle). Bill Murray is ALWAYS watchable and here makes a delicious pairing with Catherine O'Hara. Situations are wacky but plot can be easily followed. This is one of those movies that is like a feature length SNL sketch, only this is actually funny (in most parts). RECOMMENDED.
