It's so bad... it's good.
6 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I came across this movie while TV surfing, and kept trying to move on but I couldn't.

It is wonderful how awful it is!

It is definitely one of the silliest movies I have ever seen, silly to the point of stupidity, and I can't remember when I have enjoyed myself more.

While I kept telling myself I was too old (and refined) to be as amused as I was, I couldn't stop laughing.

If you can sit through it without giggling, someone should check you for a pulse!
