There is really no way to describe this movie without making it sound stupid. I admit, when I first rented it I thought it was going to be awful. Somehow, one man bitching about everything that bothers him, down to the most minute detail, is completely enthralling and totally entertaining. High Strung is one of those movies that my friends and I still quote regularly, even after 10 years. The brilliance of this movie is in the acting, and no I'm not referring to Jim Carrey. His part in this film could be his most forgettable. Steve Oedekerk's frustration and general hatred for life is so palpable, it makes the comedic aspects of his rage pop off the screne...Watch it or be an idiot.
