Great movie
5 January 2006 | by ipaasia1See all my reviews

This is Hilarious and sometimes thought provoking. It has a delightfully clever plot and sparkling performances by the lead stars. This is a genre to a new level and clearly stamps itself as the best. With its copious amounts of action, adventure, drama, and romance it's also a great movie experience. From the skills of the story's original creator, through to the the director's and cast's attention to detail, all of the ingredients combine to make this one of the most entertaining films of the year. It's fantastic with a quality production that's intellectually engaging and the vehicle for a great timely story.A clever and highly amusing independent film. This film is a witty, sophisticated, and multi-faceted film that should appeal to and entertain most adults. It can't be slotted into one genre in particular, but contains elements of drama, humor, and comedy.
