Funny...
9 June 2005 | by djjess23See all my reviews

Well I'm not saying it's one of my favorite movies but it's entertaining in a "that could never happen" kind of way. I think really bad acting can be funny, as is the case in this movie..also bad editing and cheesy "soft core"...material is humorous to me. I got a good laugh out of it! For instance, there's a scene in the beginning where Mr. Jonathat does a 'house call' and he gets 'attacked' by two white chicks, and the camera pans to some floating object in the pool! There was no reason for it, and I can't even tell what the object is to be honest! That type of really bad film production is entertaining somehow.
