Worth a look!!
27 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Very good!!!! Tommy Lee Jones i salute you!! This movie was a fun way to spend 90 minutes! I will go see again and get it on DVD!! Too many people don't know how to just enjoy a popcorn flick. if you want to see a fun movie and have some smiles, see this in theaters. Too many people slam movies that are only meant to be enjoyed. I fear if too many miss this movie, the studio hats will think we must only like remakes!!! For the love of fun flicks see this movie! You may not come away with all the wisdom & answers that some movie snobs complain about, but you will be able to say you had fun! The cheerleaders may get a little on your nerves, but it's all in fun..
