    This comedy drama with Chris O Donnell is amusing and it is a remake of a Buster Keaton movie. There
    are a few cameos and the movie has romance. Chris was great in Batman Forever, Batman and
    Robin, Scent of A Woman and on Two and A Half Men. Renee Zellweger is also engaging in this movie,
    this is one of her better movies on par with Jerry Maguire.
