Quotes

Detective Harry Ball: You have the right to shut up. Anything you say, can and will piss me off! If you can't afford a shyster attorney, we will assign you an overworked loser, who doesn't give a shit and will screw up your case anyway. Now, do you understand your rights?
Dirt Merchant: Yeah, I understand. This is a total frameup. Speaking of rights, where's your warrant anyway?
Detective Harry Ball: Huh? What?
Detective Harry Ball: [checking pockets and finding nothing] Shit!

Not as bad as you'd think.
28 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, so this movie isn't for everyone. It's funny in it's own way, but nothing that would ever win an award. I wouldn't tell you to watch it for the chics because there are plenty of ways to see Jenna Jameson without any clothes on short of watching this movie. Honestly, her scene is brief and comical - as it should be in this movie. The movie even makes fun of itself, so I would say go in to it with an open mind and you won't be disappointed. I would highly recommend you use a free rental on it rather than paying for it, and only do it if you can't find anything else to watch.

Overall, probably gets a four or five out of 10. It's mildly amusing, but looks like it was filmed on a home video camera.
