A barrel of fun and laughs
30 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

An executive leaves his hometown to complete a $140M deal. Along the way he loses his wallet which contains the main ingredient for closing the deal. While trying to get the wallet back he meets every manner of opposition and zany characters. I really liked Jim & Jim and the Siskle & Ebert clones. One of the funniest comedies I ever saw. 4 stars.
