Great black-humour. Very creative.
31 August 2002 | by ashleywebsterSee all my reviews

Well you might think me partial because my girlfriend is in this movie...but I know a bad movie when I see one, and this isn't one of them.

It' engaging from the very beginning. You immediately care about the characters and you feel very much for them as they progress through the story. Malcom Macdowell plays...well Malcom Macdowell, and it's a role made exactly for him. Malcom Macdowell really could be a murderous barber with a knack for charming woman. In fact, the entire movie is perfectly cast. The lines that each delivers, are lines that seem only that actor could deliver.

"Come over here Jewel...I've got a nice big sink to do you in!"

In short, it's believable, funny, engaging and most of all, entertaining. You come away smiling.
