This film grows on you like a fungus, before you know it you think it's very funny
24 January 2001 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Have you ever seen a movie that you didn't love the first time but somehow after three or four viewings you find yourself quoting it constantly? This is one of those films. Everyone will not laugh at every joke but the more you see it the more jokes you will get.This silly spoof comedy is smarter than you think it just takes a few times to make it work.
