I Expected the Worst and Came Out Smiling
17 August 2005 | by Exit_of_99c_SpecialSee all my reviews

I do love campy films. This one is surely just that. The humor is simple, it would best accompany the mood at sleep time or a while zoning after a long day of work.

There are plenty of films out there that should come first, but if you are looking for something light, you might enjoy it. It's more entertaining than a lot of the television programs out there so it can't hurt to watch this instead. What amazed me the most is the sense there was a decent budget to this (the airplane scene surely took some money).

I didn't expect to like this at all, but since I wrote a song which shares the same title, I had to see it. Any fans of Stuart Pankin should be happy that he is a main character for once in this film.
