David Mamets sly and charming comedy is set in a quaint New England town where a Hollywood production team takes residence to shoot the period drama "The Old Mill." A series of surprising entanglements ensue--romantic and otherwise--involving the cast, crew and townspeople. Alec Baldwin, William H. Macy, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Stiles, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rebecca Pidgeon, and Charles Durning head the top-notch ensemble cast.

Mamet is so great at comedy I'm kind of surprised he doesn't make more of them. Sometimes his cryptic dialog is a blessing, sometimes it is a bit distracting, but in this film it works wonderfully. The humor is so tight and so well written that you can watch the film a dozen times and still find new jokes, new lines you missed. A great film. And it takes place in pretty Vermont!
How quotable is this film? My god... where do I begin?
"You've got a fishhook in your finger!"
"Go, you huskies!"
"So is our electoral process, but we still vote..."
"You like kids?" "Never saw the point of 'em." "Me, either."
Her t--s, her t--s, her t--s, her t--s, her t--s."
"Know? They can draw 'em from memory."
"You can tell that a nice person lives there." "I live there!"
"Give yourself up to her. That's what I'd do, if I were you..."
If you don't know about this movie or David Mamet's work, you don't know great movies. Don't sleep on this. This is probably my all-time favorite comedy-satire.
