Don't waste your money on this movie
18 November 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I'm glad I didn't waste my money on this movie. I borrowed it from my cousin. 2 adults who are jealous of each other and don't know anything about positive conflict resolution. If I had a 13-15 year old child, I wouldn't even let him/her watch this movie. Lots of violence and jealousy in this movie. Cruelty to a cute dog. I didn't find this movie funny or entertaining. It was a waste of my time to watch this movie. There are also 2 stupid guys who get drunk everyday and don't know the difference between alive and dead. I gave it a 1/10
