Horrible
29 February 2004 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Bad film! Bad, bad film! Not a so-bad-it's-funny movie, just a lousy excuse to put something on celluloid. I'm not sure why this was made; maybe it was a contractual obligation. Inept in every way. How absolutely embarrassing for Devito and Danza. I'm sorry I am forced to type "ten lines" in order to have my comments posted, as this film doesn't warrant such attention. Ho, ho - nuns and monkeys, what could be funnier? Think of what Paramount could have used this money for, instead of putting out something my four-year-old nephew described as "stupid." .
