Just about the funniest movie of the summer, and irrefutable evidence that, if we could eliminate most of the live action directors, actors, and studio execs from movies, the world would be a funnier place. It would be a world with no Lone Rangers, no White House Downs, no R.I.P.Ds.; a world where Lindsay Lohan would find true love; a world where Adam Sandler would be an animated character under the close supervision of talented writers.
Very funny performances from—count 'em—Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and especially Mary-Louise Parker.
Way way better when it's being funny. This is the best work I've seen from Sam Rockwell.
