Ian Douglas: What to say? The story is kinda silly and doesn't know where to go. Perhaps it *is* just meant to be a psychological study of perverted normality. Maybe your neighbour isn't quite as innocuous as he looks...

Shaun Myburg (21): First word that comes to mind after watching this is.... slow... it's not really bad... just too slow for the length of the film. On the plus side, the actors do give good performances, Owen Wilson gives his best since Bottle Rocket, Janeane Garofalo, Mercedes Ruehl and even a bit part by rocker Sheryl Crow are enjoyable, but unfortunatley even they can't keep this movie exciting. If this is based on a book, I wonder how long the book took to get going.

Billy A Waterston (33): I walked out before the end, something I never do. The story was slow to say the least and detatched from reality. The characters were one dimesional and surreal.

Laura Carr (19): Owen Wilson was fantastic in Minus man.
