As a writer, Waters is best-known for creating Ryder's sharp black comedy, Heathers, and Bruce Willis' self-indulgent bomb, Hudson Hawk. As a director, he tends to waste actors, and he fails to establish a consistent comic tone.
It has some seriously subversive ambitions, wanting to take that most popular of genres, the funny romantic romp, and turn it into a black comedy, stripping away the sweetness while keeping the laughs. Nice idea, bad execution, worse result.
