good movie
21 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I really didn't find anything that bad in this movie, it has some big names and really entertaining. I found Adam Sandler's character Archie funny, along with Damon Wayans formed a good team. James Caan as the bad guy was a nice choice. The only thing I didn't like about this movie was the ending, but nothing that big to gripe about this is worth renting if you like Sandler, cussing, and fun action.
