Great light hearted comedy
30 December 2000 | by tim_simpsonSee all my reviews

It's 3 in the morning and I don't want to think much. Great time to watch this film. There's enough plot to keep you interested, without the need to catch every word on the way to avoid confusion. Too many movies take themselves too seriously - this adds a little slapstick which gives it just the bit of colour it needs.

Dan Aykroyd is as usual good, the filming is good, and for once Rosie O'Donnell entertained me more that annoying me (get more roles like this Rosie!! - the betty rubble / mother in law things make you look bad!)

I've read that some people think it's a 'silly' movie. They're right - it's supposed to be. Sit back and enjoy it!
