15 August 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I knew this was going to be no work of art when I saw it. I only saw it because I am a die hard fan of Mel Brooks and have seen almost all his other movies. I expected something very stupid after reading these comments. I tried to refrain from laughing at the movie. And...I couldn't! Some of this stuff was funny!

I still think that this movie is no work of art, but it's not as bad as you might think. Rent it if you want to laugh at a movie but don't feel like thinking too much. However, I agree with the previous comment - they could've edited the nudity (and one f-word) so that this film will appeal more to kids.
