      Audience Member Taxi guy is best part. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I do not understand why this movie has high ratings everywhere. It's terrible almost all of the way through. The only redeeming moments of the film, are the last ten minutes. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Again, these movies start and you think, WTF and then you just get blown away! This movie is fantastic! Weird, wonderful and totally Canadian. Ramona was relatable, the other characters were both fun and fascinating and Don McKellar. This is the start of my love affair with Don McKellar. He played Russell the serial killer and he played it perfectly. That dry, perfectly pronounced way of speaking, I loved it! I love him! This movie is just a lot of fun and great to watch, even if it is weird! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member A great debut from Bruce MacDonald! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I LOVE this movie!!! Whatever happened to Valerie Buhagiar? She was so great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member The first movie to introduce me to "indy" cinema. I think I still remember all the dialogue.
