Laugh until you cry

When I saw this movie about 10 years ago, oh my gosh! I had to laugh and like fellow IMDb user gold167 said, jokes, jokes, jokes. It was so funny. What made it funnier was that my brothers got a tape and watched it over and over again until the tape got exhausted! And the one-liners! Oh boy, I literally cried laughing when I saw this. This is one of the best Jamaican films I've ever seen! If you want a good comedy fest, rent this movie wherever it's available. Trust me, it'll have you on the edge of your seat. One of my cousins actually p**sed himself laughing, that is how funny it was.
