Great funny movie
27 February 2007 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

My Top 10 in comedies.

Very funny movie, and easy to watch and laugh all time.

Africa, golf, primitive with high-tech on very funny way.

I own a DVD rental store, and recommending this one to everyone who wants a good comedy.

So far, 80% of my customers were satisfied.

If you tired from watching stupid Teen comedies that are not funny, try this one for a change.

You won't be disappointed.

Watched myself this one 5-6 times, cause my wife adores it, and she play this one once a week :).

Every time i found something different to laugh, and almost every time watching till end. .
