It was recommended by a former friend
4 August 1999 | by SkidogSee all my reviews

Well, I can't say a whole lot of good things about this movie. It did, as most movies of this type do, have its moments,and it may have played well at the drive-ins when it was first released. But knowing what I do now, I would not recommend it to someone who plans to watch it sober. However, if you like dumb redneck stereotypes, then this is the movie for you. I'll admit I did laugh a few times...just a few. But don't take my word for it...rent it yourself. Then you'll agree with me,I'm sure. This is not a movie for sober people.
