Not as good as I remember since it has been edited
10 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember staying up until 2 in the morning to watch this one on Cinemax after dark. Had to wait for the parents to go to bed before I would chance watching it. It had some moments of humor and a few TnA shots. The one line I remember the most and the reason I bought this on VHS was for the comment right before the tennis match where Zigs says to one of the prep boys regarding her sister, "We are thinking about having her spayed." Unfortunately in the copy I bought this line has been edited out with about 15 minutes or so of other scenes that I remember. Really unfortunate, wonder why anyone would do that? I think that the unedited version that I saw had quite a few more laugh lines as well as most of the nudity. Guess that the censors were working overtime on this one. Oh well.
