Ridiculous, but worth seeing
20 April 2000 | by coverme6See all my reviews

Next to almost "Ishtar", "Second Sight" is a pretty bad comedy >flick. Thing is, I enjoyed it! John Larroquette and Bronson Pinchot did a pretty funny job portraying psychic detectives. It's worth watching if you are a fan of the tow stars' TV sitcom
