Quotes

Dwayne: I can remember six or seven years ago, nobody ate turkey. Now, everybody eats turkey! Turkey burgers. Right? Turkey sausage. Hey, I used to eat ham and cheese, man. Not anymore. Now it's turkey this. Turkey that. Sometimes, I wonder what animal's gonna be next, you know? Duck. I bet you it's duck.

A flat, uninspired and formulaic comedy
22 March 2005 | by NonSequitur-1See all my reviews

Except for a couple of amusing scenes featuring James Woods and Jason Alexander, this "comedy" is bereft of any originality or laughs. I had to rub my eyes in disbelief when I saw that it was filmed in the mid 90's! The only evidence that this wasn't an 80's movie was the presence of a young Hayley Joel Osment. Even George Costanza's love interest was sporting a massive 80's hairstyle.

The cheesy romantic plot just floats past like a bloated, rotting corpse. By '96 we'd already seen just about every variation on this style of comedy about a million times. Jason Alexander is simply playing a toned down version of George Costanza... Blah, I wasted my time watching this and now I'm wasting more by typing about it. Awful film.
