After watching this film, I had one question: why was it made? This is an absolutely terrible film. There were some talented actors in the film but they must have been financially desperate to have appeared in it. All attempts at humor was sexually crude material that 14 year old boys might enjoy, but most adults would find ridiculous. I have seen the same plot in a dozen films but this is the worst example ever. I can understand how someone with no talent could write such an awful screenplay, but I don't understand how anyone could have been convinced to spend the money to make it. If you have an opportunity to see this film, please do. See how much you can take before turning it off.
