A GREAT HILARIOUS MUST SEE MOVIE!!
21 April 2003 | by moviereelerSee all my reviews

I have a copy of this movie and still can't help laughing when i see it. Danny does as usual a great performance. I RECCOMEND IT!! My wife and I saw Danny on stage in LONDON ENGLAND. The supporting cast in OPERATION FRED were really great. IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO SEE THIS MOVIE BE SURE TO GO.
