I could not find much humor and in addition to the surprising lack of hilarity, it was just so slow moving!

Put all of these terrific performers in one film and you have terrific comedy and a fast paced film.

Even after one has seen the movie and knows what is coming, it's still enjoyable to watch how the various plot facets develop.

Cathy Moriarity, while not the most gifted actress, is so charismatic and riveting, especially when she's angry.

This is an absolutely entertaining film from open to close.

The only movie I have ever walked out on.

Well, it's not all like that, but the dialog is stunning for originality, comedy, bitchiness, anger, depravity, duplicity, and even...

The movie was surprisingly fun and enjoyable.

Much of the film's humour hinges on it's often scathing, but pretty accurate, representations of daytime television and of neurotic and pretentious actors.

But inspite of the talented ensemble cast and talent behind the film,it turned out just to be an entertaining film that would serve a guilty pleasure for a weekend night.

Don't waste your time.

But the shining star here is Cathy Moriarty as Celeste, a true bitch if there ever was one with more than one nasty secret (you will see in the absolutely stunning finale!

It's a delight to watch, and I highly recommend it.

An Entertaining Comedy.

Fast paced and funny satire about that original "reality TV", the soap opera.

This is so much more entertaining to me than other, more popular spoofs like Airplane!

Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.

Such an enjoyable film .

The thing made no sense, it just rambled thoughtlessly about from one boring, asinine scene to the next.

This is a hilarious, enjoyable film and I highly recommend it.

An Entertaining Comedy, that ranks amongst the better films from the early 1990's.

Funny and entertaining .
