Hilarious fun travels overseas!
23 August 1999 | by (Livermore, CA) – See all my reviews

They were just two American girls on vacation... who bring chaos wherever they go. What a fun movie. I love the little incident with the rabbit coats. You could never believe that anything in the movie was true until you read the book. It even states "Lest the reader should be in any doubt, we wish to state that the incidents in this book are all true and the characters completely non-fictitious." Once you see the film read the book! Like the film, it will keep you laughing!
