Has anyone seen this gem? This has to be the best movie I have seen this year...hands down. The whole movie is hilarious in a way that nothing has been in years (in its weirdness and irrevency (sp?).
I highly recommend this movie if you can find a theatre near you playing it.
Ralph Wiley: Sorry, we had a chat room accident. It was like Freaky Friday. In fact, like Lindsay Lohan, I just inexplicably grew a pair of 36D's. --quote actually during an ESPN chat when Bill Simmons accidentally was put under Ralph Wiley's name
Ebert's last paragraph in his one-and-a-half star review: "I'm told the movie was greeted at Sundance with lots of laughter, but then Sundance audiences are concerned with being cool, and to sit through this film in depressed silence would not be cool, however urgently it might be appropriate."
Everything I've heard about it otherwise has been that it's hysterical. We're getting it next month. I'll probably go see it just based on the mentality of "Hey...I just drove through that town a month ago."
I would NEVER diss Rowan Atkinson. His stand-up act is brilliant, and so was his work on Blackadder. Except for the glorified cameo in Four Weddings and a Funeral, however, his film work has been crap. Rowan on TV=good. Rowan in movies=bad.
