Really great dark comedy,
By A Customer
This review is from: Head Above Water [VHS] (VHS Tape)
If you like this genre, you'd have to agree that this is a fantastic dark comedy. It's not slapstick or gross-out--just an interesting story with lots of irony and lots of twists. I loved this movie because it's so unpredictable and things go from bad to worse all because of a questionable decision made at the beginning of the story. This is not "the greatest movie ever made" (see earlier review), but it definitely doesn't stink. It's very clever and you will probably want to see it again to pick up on some of the subtleties.
I was very pleasantly surprised because I hadn't heard of it at the theaters and yet it was such a treat to watch. In my opinion, this was much more enjoyable and creative than There's Something About Mary. In fact, I think it's Cameron Diaz's best movie. If you like her work, you owe it to yourself to rent it. Harvey Keitel is also excellent as the husband.
And if you're reading this Cameron, will you marry me? :-)
