This is a really charming film. Thoroughly amusing.
I thought the dialogue was strangely like a sitcom set in New York, and it turns out that the director worked on the crew of The Nanny. Yes. Most of these lines could have been delivered by Fran Fine.
So… not completely, er, Tonga… nese?
But very entertaining.
