Funniest move ever!!!!!!
19 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest movie I have ever seen in my life. I have never laughed so hard at a movie in my life. The movie is so stupid that it is hilarious. The characters are unforgettable and they all fit in well together to make this movie so funny. The jokes in this movie are brilliant and the acting is excellent. This is the most underrated comedy and I recommend it to anyone who wants to have some good laughs. The old lady who can't see and the hypochondriac are probably the funniest characters but Dana is really funny also. I can recite most of this movie cause I have watched it over and over again. This movie is still funny no matter how many times you watch it.
