Absolute Hogwash!!
14 May 2014 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

What a load of crap!!This movie was so DREADFUL that we switched it off after 15 painful minutes!! And it is so 'NOT' funny!! Its as boring as hell!! Extremely bad acting... just a cheap 5th rate movie!! Watching grass grow is more interesting! How on earth this got a 6.6 rating I don't know? It should be a 1.1 rating! The German woman in it looks like a large man in drag! PLEASE don't watch this! And those who say its very funny don't have much of a life. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE!! What a waste of me and my family's time. Why I have to waste 10 lines of text just for this review to be published here is ridiculous. They should have kept this in Jamaica only, as it seems to amuse them there.
