An O.K. eighties movie...
9 September 2001 | by matija-trostSee all my reviews

...but sadly, nothing more than that. For a comedy, it would sure need some laughs, and maybe the directing is not on a level, but hey,...there is one sexy scene (in the shower), which is not ordinary for this family type of comedy, and believe me, it gives that special touch to a movie, therefore you can say is O.K. ;))

4 out of 10 (thanks to shower scene)
