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!

Makes Plan 9 From Outer Space Look Like a Winner
22 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Oh man, this s-u-c-k-e-d sucked.... I couldn't even get any camp value out of this......and I sat through the whole thing on Showtime.... Don't bother waiting around for the 'naked' scenes either.....it's too late and only plastic Jenna Jameson is involved.. Shows how much discretionary cash must be laying around Hollywood just to get your name on the closing credits.. I guess Showtime had to throw something in at 1am... Next time I think I'd even rather be watching ESPN loop around every 30 minutes...
