So funny that I got a laughing headache
15 September 2004 | by KCRfutureSee all my reviews

I had a chance to see a screening of this movie recently and it's one of the best comedies I've seen this summer. Will Friedle and Chris Owen are well-matched as brothers and funny in every scene together. And when this duo is paired up with Renee Taylor and Louise Lasser, it becomes an absolute howl. Anyone who likes silly humor, would greatly enjoy this movie. Will Friedle has great comedic timing and Renee Taylor can make anything funny. I actually found it funnier than "Van Wilder" because "Gold Diggers" doesn't rely so much on toilet humor to make you laugh. Movies that employ the use of talented, funny actors are good, no matter what the budget. It's what happens when you put the right people together with the right project, with I believe, Gary Preisler has done with this film.
