Drowning Mona continues a recent trend in screen comedy that accentuates the cynical--with frequently funny results. Movies such as Election and Drop Dead Gorgeous have mined this territory successfully while giving us casts of characters who generally fall into two categories--the dumb and the evil. Few (if any) positive role models exist in these movies, and that's part of the fun: when things go bad, an avalanche of wrong turns soon follows. Provided you can appreciate the sadistic glee these films take in exposing the all-too-obvious faults of their leading characters, these films can be fun to watch.
