Just 90 minutes of good fun
27 October 2001 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

I went to this movie, like a few others I expect, ready for a good laugh at the expense of some non-actors and pretty much sure it was going to suck dead bunnies through a straw. I left this movie juiced by how wrong my expectations were. It's no Oscar winner by any means, but it's definitely not terrible. I thought it was cute, funny, and basically a great way to just lay back and let my brain relax after midterms. Joey's a natural (though I get the sense that's more a result of the fact he basically plays himself in this movie) and Lance is't atrocious :) Emanuelle and Lance have believable chemistry..a.nd hey, mucho Al Green...what more could you ask?
