Real Terror, Real Comedy
I heard lots of good things about this movie from a bunch of my friends, so I was expecting realy big things from it. It might not have fully lived up to my expectations, but still this is one of the best real comedy movies I've seen in a long time. The acting is excelent, and the satire is perfect. Even though it may lag at times, the pacing is superb. Everything is right where it should be. Definately a must see for anybody who's remotely connected to movie making, and there are a few inside jokes that only "movie people" or cinema buffs would get.

Definately not a family film, and that's a very good thing.
