    Wonderfully acted and a sharp script full of brilliant sexual innuendos and satire. I hate to be this person, but seeing a class act like this and comparing it to the great "comedies" of today like The Hangover and Knocked Up, there just is no comparison to the skill of classic screwball comedies. It's cliche, but damn it they just don't make them like they used to. 9 years 3 months ago

    Clearly a great script with sharp witty dialogue but I found the pace too unrelenting. 5 years 9 months ago
