good flick, better in spanish
3 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I know you guys are going to consider me weird, but I liked this film better, in spanish, because, for me it was more funnier. I thought the slapstick comedy was good and jon lovitz was an excellent actor pretending to be a gangsta, but this acting did not top his days on snl as my favorites, the actor, the anonymous liar, and the devil. Tia carrere is not so hot as the others users described her, and this was mekhi phifer first film, before becoming future in 8 mile. It was an ok film, one of those that you watch when you are bored. This is another film of the worst period of films in hollywood 1995-1996. My favorite part was when everyone was surprised to see a book, and they started smelling it.
