I've heard how good this movie is for years. For years! From everyone. What kind of a moviegoer am I to have never seen a classic film like this?
I was excited to see it pop up on cable. Now that I have HD, I'm willing to watch some of these movies that I've avoided for years on cable. SHR watched it with me and enjoyed it as much as ever.
But I just didn't get it. It was pretty annoying. I really didn't know what to expect but I wasn't expecting this. It was okay, I guess. It wasn't bad. But this is the movie that everyone speaks so highly of? Don't get me wrong. Alicia Silverstone is superbly dumb. Paul Rudd is as charming as ever, if not more so. And Dan Hedaya was hilarious. But why do people love this movie so much? Someone please explain it to me.
