Surprisingly funny and it gets better as it goes along.
21 February 2002 | by tem-1See all my reviews

I went to see this movie with trepidation: would it be dull or worse, embarrassing? It was neither. What struck me most was the good heart and spirit of the movie. Brendan Mackey in a supporting role was a surprising plus. He brought youth and vigor but even more, an intelligence rarely seen in a film by new film makers.

I want to see it again.
