Joe Queenan has a sharp-edged smart-aleckiness that I like a great deal. He's caustic, snobby, well-informed, and often absurd. This collection of essays on film, all dating from the mid- to late-90s showcases the qualities and his many idiosyncrasies. The only drawback to the book is that it has dated seriously--films are produced in such volume and pop culture is so rapidly changing that only real film aficionados will appreciate some of his analyses. In some ways it's like watching Dennis Miller's stand up from the '90s: if you lived it or loved it, the cultural references are hilarious. If not, you'll be left scratching your head.
