User Reviews

This is an absolutely awesome underrated comedy!
16 February 2013 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

In my point of view this movie isn't labeled properly and therefore is highly underrated. It's clearly a comedy, and a very hilarious one.

I mean, if hot girls aren't enough of a reason to watch a movie like this for you then you should know that the plot is awesome.

From an evil hot(most of the times) witch that hits on dudes by mixing coffee with their own sweat to awesome back-flipping Jedi mind-tricks, it's all there.

But the best of all is that it doesn't feel like other movies of the same kind... You don't realize you are actually appreciating it until your muscles hurt from laughing so hard.

I guffawed my bowels out, and i'm glad I watched this.
