Quotes

[on the phone]
Philip: Just remember that in every pothole there is hope. Well, you see, pothole is spelled P-O-T-H-O-L-E. So if you take the P, and add it to the H, the O, and the E, and rearrange the letters... or contrariwise, you remove the O, T, and the L, you get "hope". So, just remember, in every pothole there is hope!

Hilarious!
18 October 1999 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

About 3 years ago,I was searching in the Comedy section of Blockbuster when I noticed this movie.I read the back,and thought it would be a pretty good movie.

I popped it in,and 10 minutes through the flick, I was on my back laughing my head off!With Madeline Kahn stuck in an elevator making catchy Christmas songs,then unknown Liev Schniber dressed in drag,Rita Wilson having breakdowns,and Juliette Lewis' crazy sayings,you can't resist laughing!

After watching this movie about 10 times in 2 days I purchased it.

Rent this movie if you want good laughs!
