"So there i was surfing the net... listening to suicide kings in the background.... thinking... okay so i just won the Young Indian Jones trading card set... what ELSE should i get that has sean patrick flannery in it! A HA! here we go... a movie with BRITNEY MURPHY as well- SCORE! Well... i was sadly sadly... very disturbed that i paid this much money for a movie that sucked this badly.... if you like quirky black comedies... this movie is for you... but not for me! Sean patrick flannery drives around with his wifes skeleton... britney murphy causes her fiance to kill himself because she doesn't want to marry him.... it all just sucked... sean though... is still of course sexy sexy! and so is brtney murphy- but i think she looks better as a thin blond.. than a baby fat brunette...."
Sort of Ho Hum...

"I will be honest with you. I rented this movie for one reason, and one reason only. I'm addicted to Sean Patrick Flanery.There, I've said it. Granted, I had high hopes for this film, based on reviews I'd read, and the cast list. Kathy Najimy, Debbie Reynolds, and Michael Jeter have all been in films and/or television shows that I've enjoyed. I'd only seen Brittany Murphy once before and found her quite charming. Like I said, High Hopes...So, I sat down and started to watch this movie, described to me as a quirky, off-beat comedy... The comedy was way past quirky. It was more the dark, morbid sort. I've noticed that Sean Patrick Flanery has a knack for doing films about unusual relationships that appear doomed from the beginning, but somehow find a way to work. This one was no exception. The romance between the title characters is improbable at best, but more accurately it's down right ridiculous. Actually, everything about this film was ridiculous...On the flip side of that coin, it makes no real attempts to take itself seriously, so it's not as hard to maintain your 'willing suspension of disbelief'.The pluses are: 1. Sean Patrick Flanery, as adorable, hopelessly romantic, and charming as ever 2. Debbie Reynolds... Just cause she's Debbie Reynolds 3. Brittany Murphy's wide-eyed expressions, pouts, and on-camera crying 4. Michael Jeter - he always cracks me up...The minuses are: 1. Ridiculous plot 2. Over the top antics (burying a character in his football uniform means a casket that's bigger than the hole, and so on) 3. The death of one character that was unnecessary 4. All around lack-luster storyOver all, I'd recommend this one as a no-brainer, or for a fan of any of the actors in the show... They all gave good performances. It's not their fault the plot wound up failing them..."
