This movie is awesome!!
12 January 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

How anyone could not like this film is beyond me! It has everything from really hot babes ,great comedy, a wicked and inspiring ending and ofcourse Michael J. Fox.

This movie also has a brilliant soundtrack including Mark Safan's "Win in the End". The cost of the rental is worth it for this song alone.

This movie is a must see for teens and adults alike. Anyone who likes seeing the good guys triumph and has a soft spot for regular joes getting the girl and achieving greatness will appreciate this.

You'll laugh, You'll cheer, You'll Howl!!!!!
