Terrible!
2 December 1998 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Terrible! - if one word could describe this movie, this is it. The acting is atrocious and the storyline is non-existent. The supposed 'funny bits' will only make you cringe and you are forever waiting for the end to come. If you haven't watched it yet - save yourself the time.
