...it's a fast, likable 90 minutes at the movies.
Smith’s script simply crackles with an endless succession of humorous gags and on-the-ball observations while Anderson’s brilliant performance as the shop assistant from hell is worthy of a film a hundred times as expensive.
Some of the aimless dialogue is very sharp among these lumpen bourgeoisie, who've got wit and intellect to spare, but little in the way of education, ambition, or opportunity.
The comedy is raw and ribald, varying from somewhat off-color to truly tasteless.
Within the limitations of his bare-bones production, Smith shows great invention, a natural feel for human comedy, and a knack for writing weird, sometimes brilliant, dialogue.
