Truly better than when I last saw it
19 April 2007 | by (Flower Mound, Texas) – See all my reviews

The last time I saw this movie was at least a good nine years ago... years later, I find it just as funny as I did then.

How could you not enjoy this movie? It was actually enjoyable to watch Damon Wayans' character make all these far-out gadgets... some of which look totally outlandish, but actually make sense! Sure, the comedy may be a little too goofy for some, but in the end, it helps. This movie also helped me further my belief that if you get out there and do something about a problem, you'll be making a real difference in a world of indifference.

this movie is worthy of an 8 out of 10.
