FUNNY FUNNY FUNNY!
11 February 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is a comedy/romantic/drama and you can't stop laughing until the end of the movie! The movie's about a guy who is trying to immigrate to USA using illegal ways and the only way for him to get to USA is to become a WOMAN and marry an American guy! CHECK-IT-OUT Yourself!
