Mediocre comedy with great gals
9 August 2003 | by (Firenze, Italy) – See all my reviews

Almost classic romantic comedy, with supernatural touches, full of fantastic girls: from Vanessa Angel to Barbara Edwards (one of the greatest looking playmates of all time) passing through a short (terribly too short, because she's one of my favorites) cameo of Karen Mystal, and several other great looking women. They are a reason good enough to see the movie till the end (there are no other really important, alas). Worth a look for the women alone.
