What a pleasant surprise
13 July 2003 | by (Alberta) – See all my reviews

I ran across this film last night when looking through the movie listings. I had never heard of it but after reading the description thought it worthy of a look, and plus I love Tim Allen.

I was pleasantly surprised by the film and would recommend it! Good cast, including Tim Allen whom I feel is underrated at best. Christian Slater was charming and Portia Di Rossi was adorable. Plus, it had a good story!

I could be more verbose on this topic, but I'd rather let you decide for yourself what you think of the film.
