This is one of the better black comedies out there. It’s not the best, though. I really liked the film In Bruges; this movie doesn’t quite measure up. However, it does have it’s moments, making it enjoyable to watch. The cast is brilliant; they make the dialogue come alive with their back and forth one-liners. Sometimes, though, I wondered what in the world I was watching. The absurdity of the story and the snappy dialogue worked for me, though; this movie is worth a watch.
