OK . . .stereotypical
20 March 1999 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

While this was a pretty good movie, especially with the amusing foreign euphemisms, it really had a lot of racial and religious stereotyping that could have been avoided. The stereotypes did not add any comedy and seemed irrelevant to the plot.
