HaHaHa, Cute! Real CUTE!
11 October 2004 | by GOWBTWSee all my reviews

This movie is rather cute in a lot of ways. It's nothing like "White Palace", yet some of the scenes is quite similar. Breaking up is a painful thing, but your new girlfriend is your ex's mother? OK! I SEE! There is a tiger in the movie along with other animals as well. Lot's of sex is in the movie, I liked the drive-in scene when Howell's and Margret's characters were involved. I liked the part when she removes her top, then fire ants ruin the fun and they ran home naked. That is a howl! Then the ex-girlfriend sees them running. BUSTED! in every way. She's not only seeing the streaking, but she's unknowingly flashing unsuspecting strangers. That is really, REALLY FUNNY! Those scenes are a killer. And the ex-husband finds out and gets a new girlfriend only to get himself shot by her. I didn't like the part when the tiger ate the toy dog. The family should have been forewarned about it. I enjoyed the movie very well. It was cute a very memorable. It's definitely for the broken-hearted and the horny! Extremely sexy, and very well made. HAHAHA! RATING 2 OUT OF 5 STARS

7 OUT OF 10!
