this movie is an undiscovered gem!
25 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can not believe there are so many people dissing this movie! I found it by accident, and I rent it every time i can find it! i hear it is finally coming out on DVD, and i couldn't be happier! this movie is totally hilarious! the absolute funniest sex scene ever! (if i ever meet a girl who does this, i think i would shoot myself!) I would highly recommend this movie to anyone breathing with a sense of humor! It is one of the best "black humor" comedies ever made. As someone else pointed out, there are no big name actors or actresses in this film, but there are a lot of familiar faces. The bottom line is, from the screenplay down to the acting, this is one funny movie!
