I had the pleasure of seeing 'Coffee Kill Boss' in Austin and found it to be a totally silly fun film. It does take a little time to get used to. The feel is almost melodrama but the actors all seem to be in on the joke. Once it gets going the story is absolutely hysterical, and the actors did a terrific job of balancing between the comedy and other elements. It never really gets scary, but I'm only speaking for myself as some in the audience seemed shocked by several of the ah-hem, accidents, that happen to certain characters. It's definitely a film I'd like to watch again because I feel I missed a lot of lines. It's very well written. Gorgeous cinematography as well. A+++
