one of Adam Sanders worst movies ever, first of all the plot is ridiculous and retarded, second of all why would any of these talented actors take roles like this. i do not recommend anybody watch this film you will feel ten times more retarded after you watch this watching this movie was like shoving a pine cone up my ass. DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE! Some people would like this movie but if anybody were to like this movie the would probably have to be either 8 years old or just have a horrible sense of humor i would have to say if you were isralen you would be totally offended by this movie. i couldn't even watch the whole thing almost cause i thought it was stupid, the plot was horrible and it was just plain stupid.
