Great fun
10 August 2002 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Ive only saw this movie twice but the two times I watched it, I loved. Ilive in Scotland and they dont sell it over here neither do they show it on television so thats the downside for me. I should've taped it. But the film is a really good and funny film so if you ever happen to see it somewhere, buy it. Its worth the money. 10 out of 10....
