Terrible comedy! What is two great stars doing in this bad "R" rated comedy?
2 April 2000 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Joseph Green pictures briefly released this under the title OOPSY POOPSY with a cheap opening credit. This is a terrible, loud comedy that I don't know why the two stars did it. Loren is dubbed (like a Betty Boop voice) and sings terrible songs with cheezy soundtrack, and Mastroianni has a mustache in a poor role that should've went to some below him. The car chase is even terrible. Not recommended.
