Just Plain Fun
30 April 1999 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Very hilarious! It's the only film I've ever known to have my mom laughing every 2 minutes less] while she watched. She was laughing so much, I had to stop what I was doing and go and see what was all the hubbub about. Even though it didn't receive great reviews, it's really entertaining. I like Dana's line after the car/bigrig collision -- "When the going gets tough, the tough gets going in their pants." Thanks :).
