Good reason why I usually don't watch TV Movies
24 December 2003 | by (Pepperell, Ma) – See all my reviews

I was hoping that this would be funny, boy was I wrong! Any Gilligan's Island would have been funnier. Not only was it boring but the quantity of commercials was absurd. I was glad when it was over. Looks like I resume going to the video store soon.
