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

The only movie I have ever walked out on.

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

This is an absolutely entertaining film from open to close.

Such an enjoyable film .

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

The movie was surprisingly fun and enjoyable.

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

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

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.

Don't waste your time.

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

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

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

Funny and entertaining .

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

An Entertaining Comedy.

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.

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!

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.

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