Funny and exciting...why didn't it get picked up?
25 June 2000 | by (Indianapolis, IN) – See all my reviews

I loved this film! I think it probably was intended as a pilot for a TV series and I would have LOVED the series. Parker and Billy Dee make a great team...they are funny and play off of each other well. I loved the scenes with Parker and Tori Spelling (who was listed as Victoria Spelling in the credits)...VERY tender and sweet...made me want to just give Parker a big hug.

They had a great cast (Fred Travalena was hysterical), and a lot of humor all throughout. What a waste of talent that the TV execs DIDN'T make a series out of this!
