A bad movie but I like it anyway
25 January 2003 | by ihaveironballsSee all my reviews

Most people will hate this movie but it's one of my all time favorites. The plot involves a guy who needs to get a college degree so he can receive an inheritance. So he chooses to go to 'hamburger college'. Hijinks ensue. "Bun Shakers!!!!"
