    This movie is a wonderful surprise - loved it.

    What a wonderful surprise this movie was - it was one of the more enjoyable movies I have seen (if you are looking for fun entertainment). Great comedy, good mystery and suspense and wonderful reminders of high school days. Excellent cast of fine professionals. Highly recommended for an evenings entertainment.
