Funny is the word
25 June 2003 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

First time I saw a scene of it on cable here in Brazil I could understand a single word! Then I start to pay attention on them and also on the translation. It was doubled funny to me! The words in English are completely crazy and in Portuguese even craziest! I could barely see the rest of the movie because I could not stop laughing!!

If you just want fun: go ahead!
