Mel Brooks would be Proud!
13 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the most original adult movie I have ever seen, the idea is so good I would like to see it in regular movie. I have not seen this movie in over 20 years and I would love to buy If I could find it. Hollywood should take note and remake Take Off into a regular movie.
