Jack Black steals another scene
18 December 2001 | by mauisurferSee all my reviews

I liked it, it was really off the wall, many very funny scenes, and wonderful dialogue throughout. Maybe it's just because I used to love a red headed trouble loving woman, this was a fun movie. No one got killed, only one short scene that involved any violence. Not as good as High Fidelity, not as weird as Clerks, but way better than usual.
