I wish it Was Cheesier
26 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

I rented this movie only because I wanted something I could watch and make fun of. For that it did not deliver. However, it had it's moments: hiding out in a stamp machine, the kid straight up kicking a mail bomb like a football. Ah those Inspectors. I loved how no one notified the police or the FBI, the only people involved were Postal Inspectors. I know if a mail bomb occurred in my house, I would call the Postal Inspectors before anyone else. Well maybe not since I likely would be blown to bits. It's also nice to know that these highly educated officers would use a word like "madder." As in, "I don't think he could get any madder." Isn't it "more mad" or "even more mad?" I just wish they used some sort of cheesy line like, "Return to Sender" or "Not enough postage on this one." I give it a 4
