I kind of have to disagree about Joss Whedon, and it makes me feel bad! I think it has a lot of insider-y-ness (totally a word) that makes it less accessible. Like, you have to know something about Joss Whedon to get the film. Otherwise you’re just going to be going, “But why is the police station just a basement?” That said, it’s probably my favorite of the lot because it’s the one that lets the actors (rather than the visuals) do the heavy lifting.
(And because I love Riki Lindhome).
