It should have done better.
5 August 1999 | by (Fort Myers, FL (USA)) – See all my reviews

Although I think many of the best shots were left on the cutting room floor, this comedy received some bad reviews because it was a simple, funny, refreshing jaunt through the plot without sex, dark humor, and double entendre. It was just good clean fun! Unfortunately, because of that, the reviewers, steeped as they are in self-indulgent feelings of superiority, panned the film. If you like comedy that leaves you laughing and feeling good, be sure to catch this one! (And I'm not just saying that because I appear in the film for about 1/10 of a second!)
