About As Bad As It Gets.
2 July 2002 | by tfrizzellSee all my reviews

Mercy what an awful excuse for a film. Sexless (meaning impossible to tell whether male or female) Pat (Julia Sweeney) wants to get married to another equally sexless person in this amazingly poor motion picture that was just a ploy by those morons at Saturday Night Live to make a few quick bucks. They made very few bucks as the movie-going public saw through this mess before they ever set foot into a theater. Tasteless and worthless. Turkey (0 stars out of 5).
