How can someone not like this film? I mean, come on- it's not like when you sit to watch it you are expecting Citizen Kane or something! This movie is moronic and insulting, and more than likely will result in the loss of brain cells upon watching it. That's what makes it great. It's pure stupid humor that is intended to do nothing but bring about the occasional chuckle.
It's probably a little more over the top than your typical Zucker bros film (Airplane) and several of the jokes miss, but that's ok. Even the unfunny jokes are funny in their own way. This movie is comparable to watching a film some of your buddies made out of sheer boredom- even the unfunny stuff makes you laugh just because it is so ungodly stupid.
I honestly think that's what the makers intended. "You're doomed!" is a phrase all of my buddies and I used to utter to each other after watching this, and to this day I still hear the occasional Hysterical reference. It's certainly worth 99 cents at your local Blockbuster.
