I remember this one...
17 August 1999 | by (All over the U.S.) – See all my reviews

This movie is pretty predictable, but I loved it anyway. It was fun to see all those actors from a variety of popular shows together in one movie, and the storyline was funny enough to be entertaining. I especially cheered at the end because the underdogs came out on top. It's good, clean, cheesy fun!
