Had some good moments.
12 October 2000 | by (Spring,TX) – See all my reviews

I remember my friend rented this movie one day and left it here. So I figured, "Hey, it looks funny. I'll watch it". The movie had some very funny moments, then it had some not so funny and boring moments. And the whole gay thing just didn't work. It had some funny satirical moments and some just downright lame jokes. Overall, it's sorta "eh".

One of the drawbacks is the whole gay scenarios that Shat goes through. Plus, Shat narrative. It was too loud and annoying, even though I'll admit, he said some funny stuff. It basically feels like a short film stretched out.

Overall, it's funny somewhat. Rent it if you have extra dough to toss.

*** out of *****
