One of the greatest comedies ever!
26 April 2001 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I saw this great movie everytime I was ill and couldn't go to school, when I was a kid. I've seen it for at least 20 times, and it still make me laugh. I often have the soundtrack for the movie in my head. I love this film, and it is still one of my favourite films!!
