A perfectly quirky soundtrack, from a perfectly quirky film

"If you haven't seen the film of the same name by writer-director John Walsh, well, why are you waiting? It's one of the funniest little (I hate to use the term, but if the shoe fits...) independently produced romantic comedies ever: from Ray, the promiscuous, Karate Master roommate, who gets his lights punched out after a gloriously intricate Bruce Lee impression; to sweet, naive Ed's big First Date with Natalie, and the gut-busting, off-screen mouse-killing. It's a one-of-a-kind.
And the soundtrack is even better: a totally eclectic mix of pop and jazz (Tea and Sympathy, by the Comedians, prompted me to buy the disk, and the bits by Ed's Redeeming Qualities remind of a folksier, sleepier version of the Violent Femmes - several of the songs from this soundtrack are also included on their regrettably out-of-print CD, More Bad Times); and taken as a whole, it's an all-around good time - the perfect CD companion for a long drive on a warm, lazy afternoon."
