A great movie - especially if you are in the mood for a laugh!
8 November 2007 | by starlett-4See all my reviews

Although it has been a while since I've seen this film, I still remember some of it. What spurred me on in my quest to now locate a copy of my own is the fact that Wallace Langam (aka David Hodges of CSI) is in it (credited as Wally Ward) Regardless, I remember this movie being a very hilarious/silly-type comedy that i could watch over and over again. True it wasn't a 'hit' nor was it raunchy like "American Pie" or "Animal House" which i could not even get through. I enjoyed this film and would recommend it to anyone - especially if they are in the mood for a good old fashioned laugh. Similar type movies include '"Zapped" & "Zapped Again"
