This was a real disappointment...this movie could have been funny if it had good timing. It has the worst timing ever. With people like Rik Mayall and Leslie Nielsen I would think this was going to be a real hit. Rik Mayall being the evil competitor working for Leslie Nielsen. Rik is one of the most tasteless persons in comedy and frankly...That's why I love him. He's one of my favourite comedians. But he should never have played in this movie, cause it's sad sad and sad. The thing that bugs me with this one is that you know they've f...ed it up cause they haven't tried hard enough to be funny. They've just relied on the actors to be funny and the actors on the director. I'm almost positive that is one of the main problems here. Of course it could never have gotten very good with that script, although I fear it's the directors fault mainly why this movie has gone down the drain. It COULD have been better. It really could have. But when Rik and Leslie can't save this..nothing can. It could with a little luck have been a good childrens movie though.
