Wild Friends

This was a great movie, Jim Carrey at his best as usual! That being said he was one scary "friend" which I'm glad I don't have. I do have one crazy friend though that taught me karate, hitched rides all over Israel with just me, her, and her dog, brought me to Kach (Rabbi M. Kahane) rallies, taught me how to appreciate the great outdoors by sleeping at the edge of a cliff in our sleeping bags and many other things that I would never have told my parents about (except for the karate,that was one useful skill). Miss you P.!

Funny, and....

Hard to figure out. Group dynamics leaves a great deal to be desired! A good friend, and this may sound cliche, is loyal, humble, kind, and laughs like the devil............:) It is hard to survive without laughter.

Not Funny

This film was neither funny nor motivational! Perhaps the lesson is: "Narcissists don't make or have true friends", but I don't appreciate films that advocate violence like this one. Jews are for peace and this film was not "peaceful" in nature at all.
