Really bad acting + excessive violence = very funny movie, 8 April 2002
Author: Steve Lopez from USA

Alex: "Look man, I'm uptight and wasted. Your messing around with that broad nearly drove us off the road. Now leave her alone. We ain't got time for that s***." Ray: "Is that all you have to say?" Alex: "I said keep your hands off her!" Ray: "Don't ever put your hands on me again. Look man, I was just trying to relax. I'll keep my hands off the young virgin. Now if she comes on to me, that's another story".

How could you not like this movie? Plenty of bad acting, poor production values, cheesy dialog, cheap violence, ridiculous music, etc... So what if the last half of the movie sucks, the first half is worth the price of admission. This is right up there with Going Bezerk and Cheech & Chong's Next Movie.
