      Jon Popick Planet S Magazine Like something out of a Happy Gilmore dream sequence (save the lack of a lingerie-clad Julie Bowden brandishing pitchers of beer). Rated: 6/10 May 27, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Soberbia comedia de Ripstein. Los dialogos llenos de ironia son lo mejor. Filmada en un rustico blanco y negro, es de lo mejor de aquel hoy ya lejano año 2000. Muy recomendable. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
