A must see for any comedy fan!
5 August 1998 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of the movies that people will look back on and love! In a short period of time, the writers managed to make viewers breathe and live their characters lives. Everyone has their own personality in this movie, and they all get to deliver some great lines! The constant sight of topless women can get annoyingly repetitive, but that's overshadowed by the excellence of the rest of the movie.
