"I just wanted to lose my cherry to anybody..even the garbage man!"
14 December 2003 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

This film is a trash epic. Non stop laughs and a plot that pre dates the awesome STEPFATHER! Dont believe the wowsers, check this one out!! Disbelievers should check out the scene where Christy is trying to get rid of her boyfriend whilst her capters hide in the background. brilliant stuff! Where is she now?
