I loved this one...I really did!!!!, 21 May 2004
Author: Rogelio Duron De La Garza (rogelioduron@hotmail.com) from Monterrey N.L. México

I just saw this film with a couple of friends and some beers and man we laughed so damn hard at it..It had some gags i didn't even remembered, The one that got us crying in laughter is at the very ending when a bunch of people are asleep and one of them is all arched in a weird way sleeping in a table..you gotta see it to get it...How ridiculous and funny it was!!!!! Leslie Nielson is a great guy I'm so sorry about his performance in Scarymovie 3 and those movies that squashed the good and funny memories movies like these gave us fans. Priscila Presley is Gorgeous...she looks fine...but this movie dates back to 1992..so i guess now a days she must look very old..I guess. Anyhow the film was great and i remember good as yesterday the time this film came out, it came out a week before The Terminator 2 and Leslie Nielsen used to do this television spots saying: Hasta la vista..baby...they were so damn funny..I hope someone remembers them...Or someone gets them for a DVD. its a definite 10 out of 10 on Comedy.
