    ★★★★

    This would be perfect in a double feature with "Clueless".

    I love how it fills in all of the mysteries of the Watergate scandal without really interrupting the true story (except that we have since learned who "Deep Throat" was). Pretty brilliant in its management of making a fun, light comedy blend seamlessly with a serious, dark real-life thriller.

    Also, why don't we see more of Kids In The Hall's Bruce McCulloch (Leonard Bernstein) in movies? He stole every scene here, even though he was side-by-side with Will Ferrell.

    ★★

    Say what you will about this low-budget "thriller", but it DID come out a year before Cronenberg's truly thrilling "Scanners". I'd recommend watching the Rifftrax version of the movie, as this is both the perfect pace (lots of drawn out quiet scenes) and production (despite the low budget, interesting enough to watch in addition to the riffing) for their treatment. OH, and if you are from or know someone from Chicago, get ready for lots of home-movie style location shooting and riffing on the city as well as the flick.
