Not worth the theater ticket price...
28 January 2002 | by (Louisville, Kentucky) – See all my reviews

Unless you have nothing better to do, then wait to see this movie when it comes out on video (or at least the dollar theater). Although there were several funny moments, they we spread out between long dull spots. Like cheap gravy, the plot never thickened and was easily predicted by even the slowest of undergrad at the free screening--which might I add had some walk-outs (of a free movie!!!!) I wouldn't take a date to this movie either. The nudity was all from women over the age of sixty, and the sex scene was unreal.
