Facts of Life
15 January 2003 | by (FLORIDA) – See all my reviews

I'll give the other comment-giver a little bit of credit... but I found this movie to be insanely cute and very cool. I found it out only because I was a huge fan of Sean Astin in LOTR, but as I watched it and pulled more away from just loving to see Sean, I found it really groovy stuff!! Writers and directors use the same story lines and plots all the time! This thing was totally different and maybe not as realistic as we'd like it to be, but it IS still realistic. Hell, I'd be a dish dog if I had Matt Lillard and Sean Astin by my side... AND a hot stripper. It may not have been as good as I had hoped... but I do give it something for the originality and getting me to REALLY eat at a chip, lol.
