Once Again, Star Power Takes Precedence over Quality.
1 October 2000 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

And I thought David Spade was annoying in real life. Never would I have imagined that hearing Spade voice two different characters, particularly Sammy, would turn me off so much as to wish for a quick return of the classic primetime flop "Jenny" . Just hearing Sammie speak and looking at his visage that recalls Punchinello makes me wonder how he's attracting all the women he constantly cheats on his wife with. Just because of the fact that the scripts and plotlines of this "comedy" is well below mediocre alone suggests that the series creators (the always creatively precocious NBC executives) relied heavily on the assumed star-power of the former SNL alum. All I can say is that I think my rating is too generous and that I am not sorry that the cancellation happy network put THIS bow-wow series to sleep. (1/2 out of four stars)
