This film is very good, a must-see!!
11 September 2001 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film is excellent, a must-see for fans of action/comedies. Dice-Clay and Hatcher are both terrific in the lead roles, while the woman who played Seinfeld's mother in the tv series is also very good. The film also has quite good special effects and is a lot of fun!
