Less filling cause it doesn't taste great
8 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A struggling beer company employs a new ad campaign conceived by 'Hot Lips' Houlihan and lensed by Larry Sander's Director based on three losers (David Grier, William Russ, and Saul Stein, WOW talk about life imitating art)whom happened to be in the right place at the right time & get credit for foiling a robbery. The satire falls flat. While there ARE a few chuckles here and there, the movie as a whole makes you gassy. Skip this one, and either go to your favorite bar & drink real beer instead or just keep waiting for Coupon: The Movie.

My Grade:C-

Where i saw it: Showtime
