Storyline

Mike, Danny, and Rick are grown men who share a house in Chicago. They take on a fourth house mate, John, who is Mike's estranged first cousin. John's welcome to the house is crowned by his introduction to a game of perpetual pranks called "Watch it!" When not playing pranks on each other, the three men spend their time womanizing, avoiding commitment, treating women badly, and talking about women in the coarsest terms. John, somewhat of a drifter with a fear of commitment, is nonetheless a man apart from this trio of feckless cowards. He takes a shine to Anne, recently jilted by his cousin Mike. Meanwhile, Rick is doing his best to ruin a promising relationship with the fetching and sincere Ellen. How Annie, Ellen, Rick, Mike, and John sort out (or fail to sort out) their social lives becomes the focus of the movie. Written by veloc <velo_00@yahoo.com>

Rick Miller: Ya know something, Big Time... you're letting this girl thing get way out of hand. I mean, not for nothing. But you, my friend, are the one who's sitting in the driver's seat.
John: I don't follow.
Rick Miller: Well, of course you don't, but that's why I'm here. Allow me, if you will, to familiarize you with the Rick Miller theory on women.

forgotten gem
19 June 2009 | by (sacramento, ca) – See all my reviews

I love original movies and this film's practical jokes or "Watch it's" were brilliant. It also helped that it made me feel nostalgic about the days when I hung out in my late twenties with my buddies trying to stay single and "cool" at all costs. There was great chemistry between all the house mates, my only criticism of the movie is that it got a bit melodramatic and mushy in the middle when the John,Anne and Michael love triangle began to develop. But a brilliant succession of very imaginative "watch it's" and clever plot turns raised this movie well above the usual romantic comedy/buddy movie dross. This movie is one of those that slipped under the radar and is probably in the $5 bargain box at walmart, its a steal if you can find it!
