Alright for a raining Sunday
29 September 2002 | by (Your Critic of Critics) – See all my reviews

This film isn't good but it isn't bad either. It's just a normal movie with some nice jokes in it. The characters are lovable, the performances are good, and it has it's share of funny scenes.

Not bad for a raining Sunday.
