This 2007 film was an unexpected treat. The script is well-written, engaging and funny. The hyperbolic characters are well-developed with emotionally real and earthy personalities, and they interact at all levels--- rural and urban caricatures going through the stresses of marriage, having babies, holding jobs, competing for love, attention, fame and fortune. The actors (young and old) are generally clever and funny, offering excellent support for the witty script, and all do a great job. The film is well-paced and interactive, and the directing cleverly enhances the great script and excellent acting performances.
