Great Workout for the laughter-muscles
1 December 1999 | by Lars-Toralf StorstrandSee all my reviews

If you are in dire need of a laugh - see this movie. Still, it is better to wait until you really, really need a laugh, this is like Phillips Milk of Magnesia, though. The absolute last resort to get you to laugh.
