Yeah. I wonder if it's ridiculous on purpose? I mean, that dentist was pretty badass and a great character. The villain, Di Caprio also played his role nicely. But these elements contradict other, worse twists and turns in the movie... I didn't know what to think of in the end, lol. I just had to laugh. It was so unrealistic, it had to be a parody!
It's a Quentin Tarantino film. Every one of his films are ridiculous in their own special way, so I can kind of see how you might think it's a parody. It's not. It's just a Tarantino film. :p
I loved the film to pieces. One of my favourites from him.
