Ralphie! I'm surprised at you! Does this mean you're giving up?

This movie is pretty funny. What it lacks in intelligence, it makes up for in fun.
Joe(O'Connell)has just to New York City and into his first apartment. The only problem: it's infested with thousands of talking cockroaches. They all seem to be a pain in Joe's butt, but the roaches come in more useful for him than he thought.
This movie is no classic, of course I don't think any of MTV's movies will be considered classics. But they are really funny(also see Beavis and Butt-Head Do America and Dead Man On Campus).
It's a hilarious and fun little flick, even for people who don't like bugs. 8/10
