not bad, 11 June 2001
Author: (ajdagreat) from USA

This doesn't have very many big-name stars. Not too many people have heard of this movie. In fact, when I'm writing this comment, it doesn't even have the 5 votes yet.

But this is a pretty good movie. Don't expect anything spectacular, but it has some good laughs. The two stars have good chemistry. The plot is well-written but somewhat predictable. Not the best movie, but not a complete waste of time.
