    Watched on DVD with S.O. His first viewing, my second.

Maybe I have a bias against women playing dumb? I would say it's a mix between Romy & Michele's High School Reunion and Dumb & Dumber.

    There were redeeming moments/themes of course. The strain on the relationship between the characters was evident, so that's relatable…
