99 - External Reviews

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

A match-winner only if the runs didn't dry up in bits and parts. The climax however, is tied up pretty well and that's what sets it apart from other comedy films. The wit and silliness keep the flow of chuckles running through.
