Bland and tiresome.
28 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

Burt Reynolds' appealing performance is the only thing one can recommend about this aimless, extremely mild comedy. It's so bland that it seems more like a kiddie film. The supporting characters are mostly annoying caricatures. By the end, you'll be feeling that the movie wasn't really worth your time.
