Funny, I guess., 16 June 2001
Author: booveteran (booveteran@hotmail.com) from Royal Oak, Michigan

I forget when the first time I saw this was, but I laughed a lot. When I went and rented it, I did it for another reason. Because of Myst III: Exile, I quickly became a big fan of Brad Dourif. When I remembered this movie, I had to see it again. This one was a big plus, because he had a bigger role in it than most movies. It was a nice bonus because there were other actors I was fans of in it as well. Matthew Lillard and David Spade are also people I'm fans of. Rip Torn did a very nice job. The Wayans guy was ok, I guess... :)

This movie had what I needed though. Hockey, girls, college, experimental drugs... Oops. I liked it.

Yea Brad Dourif!
