  • 3 stars "I enjoyed this movie...that's really it"
  • 5 stars "Really funny, good movie, very entertaining."
  • 2 stars "interesting that you defined this as a fasnaty. it does fall into that broad category, but then so do a lot of other movies then: prelude to a kiss, serendipity, drop dead fred, etc. notice how the quality of those lesser known fantasies kept dropping as the list went on?i obviously had some disposition of affection for the movie, hence the reason it became my pick. it still wasn't everything *i* was hoping for though. and if it can't stand up to my poking, it's doomed to fail in the eyes of the veteran print critics and those people can be vicious. james the mock turtle"
