Ugh - I need an antacid after this one!
17 December 1999 | by (Woodstock, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

The writing is cheap and horrible, the jokes are pathetic, and I'll be nice about my opinion of the acting by not saying anything...

I saw this movie broadcast on television, and I found myself actually looking FORWARD to the commercials! The only thing I found half interesting was seeing Peter Aykroyd in a movie - one of the few he has made. His voice is almost identical to his brother Dan's voice.

Please spare yourself the trouble. This one isn't even worth watching as a joke. It makes me cringe at being Canadian, as it's a Canadian movie!
