I just saw it for the first time too. This movie has so many golden comedy moments, I can't believe it only got 5 stars on IMDB. Although I must admit that my expectations for the quality of the movie were quite low so I was pleasently suprised that it kept me entertained for its whole duration. I'd also have to say that this is probably Alyssa's best movie as she isn't that great of an actress but this role suited her perfectly.

I missed it. I was going to watch it in the morning on ch. 9 and I fell asleep. Damn! I'll try to find the DVD. I don't think it's available in Australia, but there's an Australian DVD company that inports Region 1 DVDs.

Here's the Link for HUGO POOL...

Is it worth it?

I got it for €4,35 at loaded247.com (free postage) just a few days ago. But it seems they don't have it anymore.

Try searching Ebay for 'Hugo Pool' and/or 'Pool Girl' (British title)...

I bought it off amazon.com.....it was a great movie

reply

Amazon.com is the closest to enny online store who still has a big stock of the movie on DVD.
But go for the Sundance Festival Favorites release, it has extra material.
The other one does not.

reply

What kind of extra material!!?????

I also enjoyed this film, though it appears we're in the minority. The dialogue is poetic and stayed with me long after the film.
