Funny enough to recommend
15 May 2000 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This forgettable yet amusing movie was a pleasant surprise, even though I can recognize that this film has some serious problems. Still, I was able to overlook the fact that the leads were annoying and that the story was pretty weak. In fact, the only reason that this movie was enjoyable was because a high number of the jokes worked. In particular, the scenes with Siemaszko, Cates, and Plimpton were very funny, but in general, this was a fun movie to watch. Worth a look.
