A most original film!
Ross' direction is decent, and he gets fine work from all the principal actors.
Richly entertaining and technically innovative, but it's also a movie with an outspoken point of view about the direction in which American culture ought to be headed.
The movie has less biting originality than The Truman Show, but it proves that director Ross retains screenwriter Ross's flair for exploring real-life issues through divertingly far-fetched plots.
A pretty nice place to visit for a while. But to be honest, a two-hour trip there seems like too much of a good thing.
A life-affirming film that throws itself into fairy-tale territory only to tell you that there is no such thing as a fairy-tale.
This wonderful film speaks volumes about prejudice, the freedom of ideas, and the joys of diversity.
