Easily one of the worst
4 January 2001 | by (Columbia, SC) – See all my reviews

Wretched. One of the least funny comedies ever made. I still kick myself for the night I visited the multiplex and chose this thing over "Arthur." I prefer to think Sterling Hayden needed the work and that Donald Sutherland was in it for the money -- either way, both are ill-served
