SWAP it for something else.
13 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Guys and gals try to make money by starting a Swap Meet at their local market, which means they get couples to sleep together in their car ( they call it a Happy Wagon) then pay for the services provided. Meanwhile, we the audience wonder how it is possible to make a movie devoid of any good jokes, and pity poor Danny Devito who was obviously forced to appear in this crap by his agent before he became famous. Savour his five minute appearance as a harassed mechanic, it's the best thing about this sorry effort. It makes the Carry On series look like the golden age of Ealing.

The front of the box proudly proclaims "Starts Where H.O.T.S Finished!" With a benchmark as high as that, how could it possibly go wrong?! Umm.. 1/10
