A fun Comedy
4 January 2002 | by broad123See all my reviews

I rented this video on a whim, and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. This isn't to say that the fillm doesn't have its problems, because it does.

Poorly executed in the directing department by Cato, this script, by screen writer Brady, could have been a big hit. The story is uplifting, and sweet, funny, and wacky throughout, yet dramatic when it needs to be.

My rating? I give it 3 1/2 stars out of five.

If you can't find that latests new release at your local video store, rent this film if you can find it!
