Pet shop
6 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was absolutely hilarious. I used to watch it over and over when I was a kid. I highly recommend seeing it for a few quick laughs and cowboys with cone-heads!!! Touche to the person who thought this up. I will never have any desire to see this again, but my life would't have been the same without it. One of the reasons I want to be a director is "Pet Shop". Definitely gives you a strange sense of happiness with a touch of western music thrown in. Overall, you should see this movie and make fun of it. But remember that someone's very hard work went into this, not to mention a lot of money and props, so respect the work.
