Movie Reviews

Comedy for intellectuals.

"OK, I may be biased here as I'm an Estonian myself, but having watched this movie some 10-15 times, well, that should say it all. It's not the "slap-in-your-face" type comedy that's coming out plentifully from Hollywood, but rather subtle "tongue-in-cheek" type, where you have to read between the lines. And by watching it a few times over, you'll start realizing details that you didn't notice before."
Wacky but smart

"This is a really wacky little film with what appears to be inspiration from Dame Edna, a mild version of the Twilight Zone, and a dash of Monty Python, not to mention the Steve Martin-Dan Ackroyd stuff on SNL many years ago as the two Festrunk brothers--we are two wild and crazy guys!

Except here, even though there are two guys, they're not wild and crazy. In fact, they're the opposite--very cautious and meek, but very creative. They're two very talented radio show writer-performers who've developed a group of characters for their ongoing show that take us through the film as the two radio guys live their lives through these characters--and two of them with a lot of airtime are women, but obviously men playing women. So are these guys gay? Nope. They're just doing their characters.

A hottie secretary to their boss shows up and their imaginations run wild, which again shows up in the story they tell, the meat of the entire film. At the end when the show's characters appear to move out of the show and into real life, it's done so gently and sweetly that it's just a lot of fun.

A fun film, fun to watch. Nice job."
