Nice to see an American movie which is not so typically Hollywood. This is a movie for those of us who think a little differently from the mainstream! My guess is many of the other voters have made the inevitable comparison to lots of other mainstream movies, which of course would drive down the overall rating, since this is more avant guard than other light romantic comedies. The combination of great casting with this odd-ball premise works delightfully well. While completely farcical, there is an aura of realism which shines through the apparent insanity of the thematic elements. My recommendation is, if you like "off the beaten track" films, then this one is well worth the time.
