Great for family entertainment
13 November 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I remember that we had this movie on VHS and that I really liked watching it when I was younger. I remember it being very entertaining at the time.

Sinbad stars as a con artist who is trying to hide from some mobsters. In an airport he gets mistakenly befriended by a geek lawyer who thinks he's a long lost childhood friend. He becomes a house guest and makes himself comfortable in the lawyer's home and really gets to know his family and neighbors.

This movie is very funny and well suited to watch with your family, I know I loved to watch it back then.
