Victoria Pratt not credited
7 June 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Basically a low B-level action movie with Andrew Dice Clay doing a lot of talking; but providing little action. You wouldn't miss much by never seeing it. Although, I'm a big fan of Victoria Pratt and am mystified at the lack of crediting of her in this movie; or in her list of credits on this site. She had a number of speaking parts, plenty of on-screen time, and the lone "revealing" scene. Probably the only one she has ever done.
