The humor grates a bit, but on the whole, it is tolerable.

I hate to overuse the word "charming" -- but this flick truly is.

Matt's Movie Reviews

In certain comedies the dialogue can be infectious. If repeated enough and delivered by great actors, lines of dialogue can stick in a persons head like an irresistible melody. The Castle contains such dialogue.
