Twists, humor, and a good plot... should've made the main theatres!
I saw this movie with a friend at the 2000 Palm Springs International Film Festival in early 2000. The biggest thing I remember about it was that it was quite enjoyable from beginning to end- I had no real lapses in interest. A good cast (some of whom were on hand to talk after the viewing) with well-played parts. It's a story about a hard-up slacker who finds a "job" walking an old lady's dog. Little did he know that he was getting into a complex, often humorous, sometimes dangerous web of relationships with the woman's family. If I remember correctly, he become's the family's cook, cleaner, and errand-boy, not to mention the object of the sultry teenage granddaughter's (?) desires. If given the chance, I would definitely see it again.
