A great way to kill an hour and a half
9 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

All I can say about this movie is that i'ts a great time-killer. I would rent it if I saw it in my video store, and personally I think it's very funny despite the reviews it got. If you're a fan of comedy or even just a fan of Pesci or Glover, give it a try!
