incredibly disappointing
26 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Indeed i am very disappointed that this movie did not win millions of awards because it rocked so hard. How can you go wrong with the guy who played Russ Tyler in D2 the mighty ducks? This amazing comedy duo not only dazzled me with their in your face laugh out loud jokes but they got the hottest gear known to man. YYYYUMMMM!!!! OH SNAP!!!!! 10 out of 10
