This movie is pretty funny.........
14 August 2001 | by (Austin,Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie many years ago on Cinemax,I think it was.When I saw it,it was titled KGOD.I still remember this movie after so many years.It does have some very funny moments.If you like movies like "There's something about Mary" or "Kingpin",then you should like this one.This also reminds me of such humour as that Wierd Al Yankovic movie "UHF" or even movies like "Kentucky Fried Movie".This also is one if those very obscure,hard to find movies.I've only found this movie once since,at a local video store.I consider it worth seeing if you remotely like any of the other humorous movies I mentioned.
