very good
22 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie kept me laughing it was funny an interesting for a low budget film. me and my friend watch it all the time. I guess it is that young humor because I don't think that adult over the age of 27 would care for it to much. And even some cute people are in this movie. but that is beside the point. The character that set it off the most was crippled Jr. I don't know but something about a drug addict that makes a movie funny like in Friday the drunk he didn't even have a big part and it was just funny. I think the part I like the most in this movie was when he was talking to Sandra and he was serious as ever after talking about his feeling he says " what I got to do to make you shake it like a salt shaker one more time
