Naked women up the Yik-Yak!
24 March 2000 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

I have one recommendation for this movie: check your brain at the door and just enjoy the parade of flesh. The plot is the standard "I need to find X (gwen's father) at all costs" and I need the help of a "world wise" swaggering, reluctant daring-do to help me.But forget it! You probably wont see this many naked and topless babes this side of 1980 and not in a porn film.Amazingly, if you are a butt man, the version that played on TV is even better than the theatrical version.
