It's funnier then you think
20 October 2001 | by Christopher MercurioSee all my reviews

When I first wanted to see this movie I was much younger then I am now. I wanted to see it in theaters, but my parents thought it looked so stupid that they wouldn't take me. So I waited. The first time I actually saw it wasn't on video. It was on T.V. I loved it. It was very funny. Not to mention that it's a fun movie. David Alan Grier is just as funny as Damon Wayans. The whole super hero plot is very good and funny at sometimes with the situations. Take it from me. See this movie. You'll have lots of fun with it. See it with your friends, see it with your kids. Just see it and have fun.
