27 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

Hilarious movie features Reiser as a college student who decides to operate his own moving business,where he is joined by his friends,several of whom are played by well-known stand-up comics.Many quite funny scenes and characters,especially Jake Steinfeld and Rick Overton.Leo Burmester is hysterical as Wylie,the trucker.
