Movie Review by Zara
August 27th, 2007

Forget about the sex

I know that there are 12 movies on my queue that are available for Instant Viewing on NetFlix and yet I keep ignoring them to watch other movies. This was one of them. I was looking for something funny and stumbled on this flick, one with a cast list of good people as long as my arm, so it couldn't hurt to try it out, right?

Well, it could hurt. My sides when I ended up laughing hysterically at a couple of the scenes in the movie. While that level of humour isn't kept up for the entire length of the film, there's still enough interesting stuff in it to keep it well worth watching. Winona Ryder, formerly one of America's darlings, tainted by the image of an unrepentant shop lifter, is hard to watch. I think I would have been better not knowing about her extra curriculars. In any case, she's really the movie's only weak link.

Joseph Fiennes, best known for his role in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE and much hotter when he's allowed to use his natural accent, is bumbling enough to keep my attention. The scene with him in the shower while he's in the restraints is probably the funniest thing in the flick. Well, aside from the whole stoner Metallica angle, but that might just be because those guys reminded me of people I used to go to school with.

It's just unique enough, just funny enough, just low-budget, lots of names enough to keep most anyone entertained. Give it a shot.
