Will Ferrell fans beware...this is NOT a must see, 13 December 1999
Author: dready from Atlanta

If you think writing and directing comedy is easy, watch this movie. It gives one a new appreciation of how hard those crafts can be.

Here, two accomplished comedic actors, Will Ferrell and Grant Shaud (Miles from "Murphy Brown") grimace their way through a painfully dull script. Despite being a Will Ferrell-worshipper, I did not laugh a single time.
