cheesy + a young chris noth = fun
25 June 2001 | by (san diego, ca) – See all my reviews

my, my, my - it doesn't get any cheesier than this. lame saxophone solos, typical detective narration, and stereotypes of an asian culture. whooo. it's my guess that chris noth shakes his head whenever reminded of this. but anyway, it was very entertaining. let's just be thankful we can watch chris noth doing bigger and better things these days. if you happen to find this on t.v. at 3 in the morning sometime, then watch it (by the by - a movie entitled "bikini ho-down" came on directly after i watched it); renting and/or buying it, however, is not advisable. have fun.
