Judge Powell: [Tommy approaches the judge] What in God's name are you doing here?
Tommy Collins: Your honor. I don't think it's fair that you guys get to have your own little powwow over here, while we can't listen. We have to hear, too, for information.
Judge Powell: You're a juror. Get back in that box!

Bad movie
18 October 1998 | by buttons-3See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I think I've ever seen in my life. Who on earth spent money on this piece of junk. Whoever they are I am sure they are regretting it. I am not a Pauly Shore basher, I really liked Son In Law, but this movie is worthless. Do not see it, I'd say burn it and put it out of its misery.
