funny as heck
22 May 2002 | by (rochester, ny) – See all my reviews

Regardless of what the movie critics say, I thought this was one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. The part where they tried to bank for quick cash and it wasn't the type of bank one would deposit cash into was a riot. If you want comedy, with this all star cast you cannot go wrong with this movie.
