the first person who commented on this apparently doesn't have much of a sense of humor. This is a collection of hilarious off beat comedy skits (it's not a "movie") and if you have any sense of humor at all you will find something funny in this. and another thing, how could Hulk Hogan make it work? And bring integrity? All he does is walk around in a speedo, he didnt write the skit, he's just acting. thank you.
