This is for lovers of OVER-THE-TOP comedy!
22 December 2002 | by crumbchrisSee all my reviews

This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I laugh out loud throughout every time I watch this. Morgan Fairchild revealed a side of herself I'm sure no one knew she had. She is quite a gifted comedienne! And, Dyan Cannon and Harvey Korman are at the top of their game here. Throw in great talents like Ricki Lake, Mo Gaffney and Victoria Jackson, and what more could you ask for? This movie is a laugh a minute. The costuming and art direction are especially top-notch. For those who love to laugh out loud, this one's for you. Just as funny as "Scary Movie" or "Airplane!"
