Trivia

When IRA (Keith Knight) was being interviewed by Jane Beardsley (Susan Anspatch) he performed a dead-on impersonation of Curly of the 3 Stooges. In an earlier scene, the Vespucci nephews engaged in 3 Stooges antics in the basement trying to stop the overflowing toilet. See more »

My vote for the worst movie I've ever seen
3 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

Where do I start? Is it the horrible writing? The atrocious acting? The unbelievably lame plot? If you want bad, this is your movie. I had the misfortune to be in the crowd of about 50 movie-goers when this assault on decently was released. By the end, about 10 people were left. There were no laughs. Unfortunately, unlike the classics such as Plan 9 from Outer Space, this one was not even schlocky enough to make it funny. Just a bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad movie.
