User Reviews

This downtown New York comedy is surprisingly poignant and moving.
5 July 1999 | by silver-33See all my reviews

The performances from this large cast are a pleasure to watch and the story, while being a comedy, has a lyrical and poignant feeling. So many good actors taking on roles we normally don't see from them. I'm really glad I saw this film.
