I just LOVED this movie.
7 May 2008 | by dinsdale-8See all my reviews

Budget clearly means little when all the other elements are first rate. So many of the gags are subtle - not so they're hard to spot, but there's no special effort made to draw your attention to them.

The KFC goof was one of my all time favourite "little" moments in a movie.....not least because it takes about 1\2 the movie to get from the setup to the punchline.

I'm not sure why I need to write more lines of text, but apparently I do. I really don't have a lot more to say about this little gem of a movie, but I suppose I can keep typing, just to fill up space. Think of all the ones and zeros that are giving their lives so pointlessly.
