User Reviews

This movie is just too funny!
1 September 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest Stallone comedies there is, if nothing else for the fact that Stallone is so bad at it! Imagine an NYC cab driver turned country & western singer? What could be better than that? Dolly provides a solid comedy performance as well. If nothing else check this out just for the laughs!
