This is a great film. Don't go to see it if you're straight-laced or your idea of a good film is lots of car chases and fart jokes, but it is definitely worth a look if your head's on straight and you appreciate good acting and a director who isn't afraid to push the envelope. One of the few films I'd go to the movies to see, and one of the fewer I immediately want to see again.
