I Went For The Laughs And I Got It!
14 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has stood out in my mind until this day. I loved this movie

because of the laughs but it is also good that we got to poke fun at a man crying rape instead of a woman. It wasa comedy and was meant for us to laugh about it.

The father, played by Paul Sorvino either gave a ride or got a ride with a much younger beautiful woman. I won't give everything away suffice to say he ended up naked hiding in the back of a woman's house, trying to get clothes from her clothes line to cover himself with, she saw him and called the police. He told the cops he was raped and of course they do not believe him. They were all snickering and laughing at him, they just thought was a pervert. It was not a serious movie, it was more of a comedy and was made for laughs and should be looked at that way. That is what most movies are for, for us to have fun. People should not be so serious about something that should be funny.

Those days we were not as politically correct as today and people was able to poke fun at things they could not get away with now. Don't know why.

I watched and love it for the laughs and you will too, if you ever get to see it. I would love to see it again myself.
