Quotes

Frankie: [in a transvestite nightclub] Um, excuse me. Um, I don't mean to be rude, but is that a paper bag that you're wearing?
Celestrial: [wearing what looks like a low cut, fashion-designer mini-dress, made out of brown paper] Ah, well, as a matter of fact, it is. I'm a designer / slash / astrologist. Trust, I believe in all that cosmic carrying on, and woo-la-la. Cluck!

Can you say "WOOops!" and feel guilty about seeing this movie?
28 November 1999 | by (Wide World Of Movies) – See all my reviews

So a psychic predicts that "Woo" is going to have a good-hearted man for the hot night, right? Well, Jason predicts that you're not going to get a single laugh nor thrill from this wasted, inept, trashy, short urban comedy where there are plenty more apartment buildings and nightclubs to shoot a picture. Ms. Smith is one good actress they've wasted there, but rest assured that all of the acting (as well as the diversion) is to blame. Forget a "one-star" review, or even a halfsie; this one is absolutely, positively REJECTED.
