very poor film
8 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

well thats the worst film i have seen in a while if i wasn't in the middle of loads of people i would of walked out. i didn't once laugh it was WAY to predictable. i enjoy spoof films like aeroplane and nakedgun but this was just poor don't waste your money on it trust me you wont be missing much. the boy in the lead role Drake Bell cant act in this film to save his life he should just stick to drake and josh I'm a fan of Leslie Nielsen but he should just cross this film of his CV .well what I'm getting at is don't waste your time or money on a film which will leave you felling riped off this film is not on for long but it does seem to drag and your end up just wishing it to end
