Liked it, but can't find it
18 February 2004 | by (Lagrange, IL) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie years ago, and really liked it. It got bad reviews and disappeared from view. I have not seen it on TV or video stores. Kahn was great and so were the many cameos. Give it a try if you can find it.
