wonderful entertainment, but no hit
11 July 2002 | by tim170885See all my reviews

i just saw this film for the first time and i enjoyed it. with a cast of great actors and actresses it didnt reach my expectation, though gave me a smile at times. not a laugh a minute but the great soundtrack made up for it. i recommend it if you have nothing better to do but if you are looking for a good comedy then get the "burbs'".
