The last guy totally missed the point. This movie is a COMEDY, buddy, as in ha-ha, good time had by all. I loved watching Nicole Eggert doing her sarcastic California girl thang--and that Star Trek guy actually is a bit of a looker--who knew?

You need to actually possess a sense of humor to enjoy this movie--but if you have one, check this one out 'cause it's fun :)
