Loved it, loved it! GREAT, WONDERFUL!
6 August 2002 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie since 1997 and I just remembered it last evening. Now I'm frantically looking for some place to buy or rent it. It's a very obscure film, not many people know of it. When I saw it, I was pleasantly surprised! This movie has great dialogue, hilarious characters and is an all around GREAT movie! Give it a try! You won't be sorry!
