Grippingly funny movie. I put it in my top 10 movies!!
24 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Putting these two together was genius! Belushi and Ritter complement each others personalities like Matthau and Lemmon...but funnier! The premise of this movie is quirky and original, all through the movie there is some unexpected surprise to throw you. I really could relate to Ritter's character and found myself cheering at the end! A least rent this movie if you haven't seen it, you WON'T be disappointed!
