Wow! One of The most silliest Movies I have ever Seen!!!
27 December 2000 | by (Tel-Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

...But I Loved it, Although most of the jokes are very very low and the cast and acting level is one of the worst I have ever seen (frankly, It's seems to me that the actors WANTED to play bad..) -

and, of course, the Lousy piece of Art design, Although all of that... I must admit that when I saw the movie I just can't stop laughing , Really... It is SO silly and SO Dumb and SO SO low, That it works!!! It did the Job!!!

In my Hall of fame of trash-comedy-Movies It almost Equals to Jim Carrey "Dumb and Dumber" (that after-all does takes the honorably first place).

Don't look for art here, cause you will not find any; Don't mind the plot, don't mind the acting, Don't mind anything about this film - just prepare yourself to waste one and a half hour of your life - take some snacks, sit down, relax and Laugh... (or cry).
