Quirky and delightfully fun! Definately quoteable!
12 January 2003 | by (NC, US) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie for a family night as long as the children are not too young. My parents and brother watched it a few nights ago and kept talking about it and quoting it so I had to see what all the fuss was about. Now I am quoting it constantly. The memorable quotes section definatly needs to be listed as an option on this movie. I honestly do not know why it has not been more popular. DJ Qualls is hillariously stupid! Give it a chance, it is a comedy, don't take it so seriously. I thought it was very cute that instead of cursing they actually said things like "'A'-holes". Loved it!
