Very funny comedy that deserves a peek!
19 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

This was actually a very funny film! The laughs were nonstop, and the acting was great! Even the action scenes had some laughs as well! Dom Deluise, Jerry Reed, and Suzanne Pleshette made a terrific team! don't forget Luis Avalos (Ramon)! He was OK too! If you haven't seen this movie, GET IT! You will not be disappointed! There is nothing really objectionable, Just a few swear words. In a nutshell, Great comedy, well written and directed!
