Laughed so hard I almost hurt myself
19 January 2004 | by SteveFranklinSee all my reviews

I first saw this at a Drive-In. It made me laugh so hard that I fell to the floor. As a 6'3" driver, slipping beneath the steering wheel, this was no minor accomplishmen (nor was disentangling myself and escaping so i could sit up again). I felt the movie delivered one pleasant surprise after another, presenting unpredictable and hilarious situations. The pace seemed to start deliberately slow so that it could steadily build. What some considered uneven pacing stuck me as a gift that allowed me to occasionally catch my breath. Now, if it would only be released on DVD!
