Quotes

Vicki: So Harry, what can I do for you?
Harold Grisham: Okay... here's what I want. First we both get naked.
Vicki: So far so good.
Harold Grisham: Except... we're both wearing sailor hats. Then we get into a jacuzzi filled with Pepto-Bismol, I clip your toenails, and you shave my buttocks.
Vicki: [shocked] Pardon me?
Harold Grisham: Naked, Jacuzzi, Pepto-Bismol, toenails, shave my buttocks. How much would that cost?
Vicki: Harry, you have quite an imagination.

One of the funnest comedies of 2001
17 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From start to finish, it's all laughs. The movie is meant to be wacky and to be really taken seriously. I especially love the part when Jon Lovitz looks like Hitler. It's one of the best popcorn comedies of 2001. Just sit back and have fun. B+, 8/10
