Stink Big!
27 January 2007 | by pabdiary27See all my reviews

This movie is so bad it's....BAD! Not to say that I didn't enjoy it. Just looking at the Pauls' skimpy outfits with their steroid pumped torsos was quite a memorable experience. Their acting skills make one governor Schwarzenegger look like an Oscar winner. Occasionally you can see a look of disbelief on the faces of the now successful actors while in a frame with "dumb and dumber". I couldn't help but think how great an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 this would have made. With all that aside, it was a nice reminder that we all have the potential to be a muscle-bound, under- clothed, docile trucker WITH a twin to boot. My only question now is...was the movie title a reference to their bodies...or their hair?
