Fabulously entertaining comedy
27 November 2003 | by PegcaffertySee all my reviews

"Spin the bottle" is hilarious! This comedic script is brilliantly acted as well as directed.From the satirical spin on boy bands to the insane journey of Rats and his employment capers, I was laughing throughout the film. "Spin the bottle" is brilliant!
