Gish! Young! Comedy Farce! Boring!
8 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

To say this movie, so to speak under-performs is an understatement. This situation comedy starts of charmingly with wit and the right amount of pathos. But the lucrid tone in the second part, especially the court room scene which is an example of unnecessary sumptuous foolishness, silliness and infantility of the highest order is a plain embarassment. Gish and Young are both fine and have a nice and cool chemistry. But the temere ending of this b-programmer leaves you feeling you just wasted 66 minutes of your time.
