Very Funny/Good Movie...Not Shouting But It's GooD
28 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is very funny and I think that people all over the world should see it. It has some good one liners like "in my heaven it's endless tofu balls, tube socks and boobies" the guys replies "your heaven sounds likes a sweat shop" another good one "I'm going snorkeling and won't be coming up for air, that's how good I am "

It's worth your time. See it, yo.

I like it, it's good.

I have to write 10 lines but I don't have anything else to say.

It's good, it's funny, see it.

See it when it comes out.
