This was highly entertaining for sure. Funny dialogue and captivating performances. Most notable is perhaps the gender dimension. I did not notice anything noteworthy from a form/style point of view. The development of the plot seems slightly forced in service of moving the story forward. Also the song at beginning/end is an witless attempt at narrative coherence. I dont' know how creative the film is in the context of genre conventions. It is possible further merit lies therein.
