Pretty funny!!
26 August 2006 | by (Anywhere) – See all my reviews

This movie was pretty good but the only part I kept rewinding and laughing at was when one of the girls in the house gets ganged up on and beat up. Margaret Hamilton (also known for her role as the Wicked Witch of the West a few years back) gives a great performance as the wise cracking-alcohol drinking-card game cheater who beats that woman senseless and now I really know why Dorothy never messed with her in Wizard of Oz. That scene was so priceless I couldn't help but watch it over and over. LOL!!! The movie is pretty poor quality but if your a fan then I suggest you watch it!! Especially that fight scene. It was a pretty good movie overall!!
