User Reviews

Van Dien not only at his funniest...but sexiest as well!
16 June 2002 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie will make anyone who sees it not only get belly laughs...but cry as well. Van Dien is in top form as the charming phone solicitor who unknowingly falls in love with the daughter of a dying rock star whose vintage Mustang he is attempting to confiscate for non-payment. Lauren Grahame (of TV's "Gilmore Girls") exchanges hilarious one-liners with the offscreen Van Dien ("Moritz...rhymes with ----!). Funniest scenes ever...from the look on Van Dien's when confronted with his boss pointing a pistol at his head to when he walks, rather stiffly, out to perform his duty; Van Dien searching through his mailbox with thick padded gloves for snakes; Van Dien joining Grahame in a quickly soaking Mustang during a rainstorm. Most touching scene...Van Dien (in a Sgt. Pepper jacket and bath towel) revealing to the dying father who he is and requesting to court his daughter. All in all, a touching and hilarious film.
