Best known for John Kennedy's guest role
27 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

I guess this movie will go down in history as "the one "John John" was in". For those interested: he has a cameo role as a guitar player who's talking to his girlfriend in the background of a party scene. He does a swell job! Really funny!
