Have any of you ever thought... I can make a cool comedy after seeing some great one like airplane or naked gun (pretty much anything with Leslie Neilson in it). If I made a comedy, i think it'd be just like this. Any opportunity this film gets to poke fun... it does, & does well. This said, unlike many comedies, it holds its plot well (which incidentially revolves around the breasts of the lead guys girlfriend, not that there's anything wrong with this), and has a few classic lines. My favourite involved the alcoholic coach and the so called '6 pack'. This film is great. if you ever see it, snap it up & you won't regret it.
