Quotes

Dr. Primkin: It's like hidden gold under a 20 ft. pile of horseshit! Nobody wants to dig through it, but guess what? It's in there. The truth, waiting patiently under all the horseshit that is the buildup of our silly little lives! So, go in and get it, people. Dig for the truth!

I liked it but it's not a comedy
9 November 2006 | by mn_aquaSee all my reviews

I liked the movie. Ben was funny and Rebecca Romijn lovely and very attractive. Both gave a mature performance, and the characters they portrayed were real and convincing. But the movie contained more drama than comedy. A few times I laughed, but overall this movie had a serious message about how to cope with people's imperfection (and your own). Psychological themed movies always are presented as comedy (hence the casting of John Cleese, the neurotic par example) but that's just to make it not too heavy. I liked the message of the movie though. All together the movie is a nice distraction, and some people may learn from it. Especially if you are a fan of Ben, this is a must-see.
