The only problem with this, and it is a big problem, the relationship with him and Hannah is boring and pointless, and slows the whole film down.

but the movie is just too slow and talky for my tastes.

This film is worth watching for one reason and one reason only.

Worth watching at least once.

This is an overall dull comedy that contains some funny moments.

The supporting cast are also very engaging, being far more than just a backdrop to Moore and Hannah.

It's the kind of movie that you get excited about showing friends, and glow with pride at finding such a great movie for a good part of but then sit around uncomfortably for stretches of it because you know they are inexcusably boring.

Now I sometimes watch it, fast forwarding through the tedious bits.

Darryl Hannah playes a cute dysfunctional inmate who falls for a stressed-out and temporarily committed Dudley Moore - there's a lot stolen from "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" here, but it's entertaining enough that you shouldn't mind.

too talky and slow (3.5/10) .
