I cannot believe this film has a 58% rating. The movie is a gem. The casting is absolute genius. I love it.

Great movie. This was the breakout role for Jennifer Aniston where, for the first time, she got to show her acting chops and prove that she could be more than just 'Rachel' from Friends. From her opening monologue, you realise that she is doing something special, and she puts in a wonderfully controlled performance.

Other standouts are early roles from Jake Gyllenhaal as a troubled young man who thinks he's Holden Caulfield and Zooey Deschanel as a retail store employee with an acerbic wit.
