Not that good but if you have good mood-maybe
12 January 2005 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Well i read in the TV programmer that on one Chanel i can watch a movie with Matthew Lillard.I saw Marlone Wayns and David Spade and i said to myself-"This movie will be hilarious.OK what are my impressions after watching Senseless.Black comedy with good cast which saves the whole film.First of all-Marlon Wayns.The big star from Scary Movie[2 years later].I thought that he becomes great black comedian actor in Scary Movie but he is also good enough in Senseless.Nobody can compare with Shorty but Darryl is also good character that suits Marlon.Second of all-David Spade.He appears in the big "Just Shoot Me" as Denis and he is great there.Now he is the rich guy who must take his economic test and beat Darryl.He is mean in this one but also great movie for him.Matthew Lillard.His best movie is defiantly Scream and he is also my favorite actor.He does't make much appearances in Senseless but in the scene he is,he is good.Not so hilarious as Scream,Scooby Doo and most of his other films but again the guy that the people notices.At all a good comedy in which Darryl gets super powers of his senses.If you want to watch something with Marlon and Matthew in your free time,choose this.It won't let you down.
